    Permeable surfaces! Improved groundwater infiltration!

    Strange how much was left behind, fragments of walls, debris, etc. It looks like unfinished work.

    Ohio Ave has cleaned up so much since they tore down the projects! We used to find needles everywhere on the sidewalks, several cars were broken into..it feels so much more safe now!

    That’s the case with many other buildings, whether it’s the Statehouse, a homeless shelter or a luxury condo. A Columbus Free Press editor, Michael Alwood, described Poindexter Village as “what was once the heart of a thriving Black community. ” He may have been referring to the 1940s or 1950s.
    The razing of these historically significant buildings is done. So, it’s a matter of community members determining how to move forward.

    Alwood also wrote “CMHA has no immediate plans for the empty land ” and that there was to be a public meeting about it on 12/12.

    Anyone go? Anyone know about how the land will be used?

    Poindexter Plan Calls for 350 Multi-family Units, Urban Farm
    March 8, 2014 – Brent Warren

    The latest plan from the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) for Poindexter Village calls for eventually building about 350 mixed-income, multi-family units on the site. It also proposes a collection of commercial uses along Mt. Vernon Avenue, including a three-story mixed-use building, an urban farm, and a “Food Hub” on the former IGA site at the corner of North Champion Avenue.

    It looks like some good news is coming for this project tomorrow,

    HUD chief likely to give CMHA grant decision

    The secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is to be in town on Monday with an announcement about the future of the former Poindexter Village public-housing site and surrounding neighborhood.

    HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan also is supposed to take a walking tour of the Near East Side neighborhood. His announcement probably is related to a $30 million grant the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority applied for last year.
