The Columbus Compact Corporation is seeking interested community members to help plan and execute the redevelopment of the Franklin Park Trolley Barn facility, located at the northeast corner of Oak Street and Kelton Avenue, just one block south of Franklin Park on the Near East Side.

As part of this effort, the Compact is organizing a group of interested and concerned stakeholders, called Friends of Franklin Park Trolley Barn, which has a page on Facebook. Anyone is encouraged to join this group and support this critical redevelopment effort.

Over the past two years, Columbus Compact Corporation has engaged in sampling opinions and ideas of area residents and stakeholders about how the site could be reused and/or redeveloped. In continuing this process, a community visioning session is being held this Saturday, September 4 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM at Central Community House, 1150 E. Main Street. Snacks will be served and there will be a short trip to Franklin Park Trolley Barn for walk-around on-site at 11:30AM. Please RSVP to [email protected], or register Events section on the Facebook page.
