    Developers Say Auto Racing Coming To Old Cooper Stadium By 2017
    By Kevin Landers
    10TV

    COLUMBUS, Ohio – Three years after developers promised to transform Cooper Stadium in west Columbus into an automotive research and entertainment venue, the stadium remains at a standstill.

    A promise to open in 2012 never came. Neither did another in 2014.

    Currently, the tattered ballpark is home to a field of weeds, rusted steps, and faded baseball memories.

    The west side eyesore along Mound Street has frustrated local businesses who believed the project would be completed by now.

    Yes, it will stay on High Street most likely. The most likelu candidate for a relocatiob is the South Campus Gateway.

    That post made me laugh. Thanks. I needed it.

    But you can always take I-270 to get from Grove city to Hilliard….. I don’t get the “go downtown then back out aspect of that” as for the rest of that post… What walker said x10000

    Accident waiting to happen: the Ohio village that’s built on a crumbling dam
    The army corps of engineers is warning of a high risk of ‘catastrophic failure’ but it is just one of thousands of similar structures across the US rated ‘high hazard’

    The Guardian
    Chris McGreal

    Buckeye dam is nearly two centuries old. It was built, mostly using earth, to create a sprawling lake to feed water into the now defunct Ohio and Erie Canal. Before long, fishermen were building wooden shacks on top of the dam. They did little damage but opened the way to much larger structures.

    The army corps of engineers said the dam has been undermined by the construction of more than 370 houses on it, with foundations carved into the earth, and the driving of piles holding pontoons, decks and boat cranes directly into the dam.

    “Portions of the dam have been dug away to accommodate pools and patios, utilities and drainage systems for the structures that are built into the dam. All of this has weakened the dam and undermined its stability, increasing the likelihood that it will no longer be strong enough to hold back the weight of the water behind it,” the report said. “Tell-tale signs of critical weaknesses have been observed on the dam, such as significant seepage, subsidence, persistent wet areas and structural deterioration.”

    That is the must stupid excuse I’ve ever heard for not going taller than 6 stories on High Street. I understand the fact that parking may be somewhat “Strained” in that area of Downtown, but why can’t the city help fund a new one?

    If they have done it in the past, and the result was two new buildings over 10 stories and two more over 8 stories at two consecutive intersections of the city, then the city has seen the benefits of doing such a project and the silence currently from city hall is deafening. They should be extending an arm to Edwards.

    As a recently “out-of-the-closet” bisexual man. I saw this decision inspiring and full of hope for the future of this nation. So excited for not only my future, but the future of many other people in this nation.

    Love! Love! Love! The design is refreshing in the fact that nobody has used it in Columbus yet. I’m looking forward to seeing these built.

    The improvements seem to be completely finished now. The building looks very pleasing to previous iterations of it.

    A current program that I attend, called Mosaic, had Will Petrik come in to talk to us. He seems like a great person all around. A huge bonus is that while he has no real “specific vision” he has a great ability to listen, as most of the 2 hour part of my class was spent asking him questions.

    A great guy, and a great person who has the opportunity to listen to the city’s residents, I will surely be voting for him!

    According to a new article published on the Dispatch, the COTA Board of Trustees doesn’t like the idea of raising the fare on the CBUS and the little summary says that “several trustees said the proposed 50-cent fare could kill the free Downtown circulator.” And one of the trustees goes on to say:

    “I think we are jeopardizing our success if we move to a fare,” said trustee Craig Treneff. “Frankly, a lot of young people don’t carry cash with them.”
