Columbus City Council unanimously voted Monday to amend the city’s South Side Plan (84 page PDF) to include the remaining portion of Merion Village and Schumacher Place.
The initial plan, completed in 2002, included the southern part of Merion Village. With council’s vote, the remainder of Merion Village and Schumacher Place were brought into the fold, and as such can benefit from future plans for the South Side.
The original plan ended at Nursery Lane, said Bob Leighty, Merion Village Association president. Council member Maryellen O’Shaughnessy said the plan acts as a road map for the future of the area.
