    Love seeing the expanded transportation services coming along lately with Car2Go and the Bike Share program. If you live in the city, it’s becoming less and less imperative to own a car.

    This is a great idea for a series and the interview with Jason was great. I think there is interest both in the design aspects as well as the behind the scenes planning. I think even just interviews learning more about each company’s or person’s role in the process would be great.

    I definitely second what “geoyul” mentioned about zoning,etc..

    “Don’t forget about the fields of planning that are the foundations of the field (zoning, transportation, economic dev., etc…)!”

    Yes, for sure! But even if Columbus doesn’t get funding, I think the community here can work together to paint bike lanes without help from this project or the city. I saw an example online where a biking group repeatedly tried to work with their city to paint bike lanes. The city never did anything and the organization just got fed up, so they raised enough money over 2 years to paint a substantial amount of bike lanes just using volunteers and donations. The result was bike lanes and the city didn’t even know about it until it was completed. The lanes are still there. I’ll have to find the story online.

    How do you as a city council member, plan to help facilitate or foster economic growth and development in downtown Columbus and neighboring communities?

    The License Section is not willing to pursue code changes to allow Pearl Market sidewalk sales because of a concern about the number of pedestrians the Pearl Market draws on Broad Street and Gay Street sidewalks and the precedent such a code change would create.

    What precedent?

    Yeah, we wouldn’t want to encourage MORE people to walk around downtown city streets to help with revitalization efforts!! (sarcasm)

    Unreal.

    Yeah, Barrister was great, I agree.

    What I think has helped with other bars like Vonn Jazz and Rumba, is the addition of “matinee” shows much earlier, like 6pm or 7pm. Columbus is mainly a 9-5 town and especially downtown. If a club opened up downtown or close to it with regular jazz, I think having 1 early show and 1 late would be the way to go. Then you can get the after work crowd to stick around.

    There is a list of venues that support and house live jazz in Columbus here: Columbus Jazz Venues[/url] **always changing.

    Also, whoever mentioned about bringing more national and regional acts through had a good point. I think we (Columbus) can work to get more of that coming through. This week though, there are a number of great International/National acts playing here. The Lincoln Theatre is helping to host these performers.

    We have a ton of great talent here and the scene is always changing but hopefully we can get more people out to shows, more places for live jazz and more focus on our great jazz history!

    I agree that Alum is crusty. :)

    Someone mentioned Indian Lake. Is that close by?

    Any other bodies of water in the city that are swimmable?

    I think it’s important to be able to laugh at oneself.
    Plus, I don’t think anyone is interpreting this as a serious tourism video. It’s pretty obvious that it’s just a joke.

    I think it’s funny to some extent and know it’s a joke, but unfortunately, that is what others will see/perceive of cities in the Midwest, including Cleveland. And ultimately it affects the image of Ohio as a whole. Not that the video is all that incorrect but to the extent we can put positive videos online about Cleveland, Columbus, Cincy, I think the better for the whole of the state, that’s all.

    We all know this video will get more views than the Cleveland Visitors Bureau videos, it’s just human nature.

    It’s unfortunate that this is online. Cities like Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh have a hard enough time rebuilding themselves after years of industry leaving their city. This can’t help.
