    But, records obtained by WOSU show there were hardly any public complaints about sidewalk obstructions on Gay Street.

    He lied. He lied to us. Terminate him. Immediately.

    This is funny:

    The one complaint about the sidewalk being damaged was actually filed by Chad McCoury, the owner of J. Gumbo’s.

    Capital Crossroads was stirring the pot? No wonder they never got back to Liz.

    One of Columbus’ public officials lying to the public to cover his ass? Shocked I tell you, I’m shocked.

    I want to commend Chad for finding a truly unique way of solving the issue of blind people not being able to search out the flower baskets hanging on the fence at waist level. I noticed on Friday that there is one flower basket hanging at the top of the fence, and a second identically sized flower basket at the bottom of the fence. Right in the area that someone with a cane could hit, and then avoid. Well done!

    At least Columbus isn’t alone in these types of issues.

    You had better be right about this Chad. I’m taking an awful risk.

    More great things happening on Gay Street. The banners mentioned in this CU piece are beginning to be installed. A great, visual impact to a growing, vibrant district. Various advocacy issues, such as the proposed parking meter increases and the outdoor dining issues, mobilized area businesses and organizations to form a Gay Street District non-profit group spearheading exciting projects for the area.

    As an update to the original topic of this thread, the Gay Street Collaborative is currently part of a committee working with the city (Dept of Public Service) to update/revise code, policies, procedures and applications regarding outdoor dining leases.
