    The Connect Columbus Initiative is gathering ideas and presenting new concepts for transportation and transit infrastructure, as well as ideas on more walkable, bikeable and transit-centric development:


    One of the study’s focus areas for the north side of Columbus is the “Northern Lights” area surrounding the shopping center of the same name. This is a pretty large area that centers around the Innis Road Intersections at Cleveland Avenue and Westerville Road.

    The study looks at proposed north-south transportation solutions (COTA, BRT, Bike Trails) that all run like a spine through this area, and consider what could be redeveloped in a more walkable mixed-use neighborhood where there is currently mostly suburban-style retail and sprawl.

    The study calls for infill at the Northern Lights Shopping Center itself, and a whole lot of denser infill between it and Westerville Road. The bike trail that cuts through the middle would include a spine of greenspace that would span around eight city blocks.



    Would love more green space bicycle trails column foot friendly are. I have lived behind Northern Lights for 10 years this area needs some love.



    As a sitting member of the North Linden Commission, I certainly hope that we see this come to fruition, sooner rather than later!
