Upper Arlington City Council is readying to consider a significant step toward fulfilling a long-anticipated wish of many residents – a community center to call our own. Over the years, various surveys, studies, and anecdotal feedback cited the lack of a community center as a top concern. A resident-led task force, formed in the summer of 2019, placed renewed focus on the issue, concluding by the close of 2020 that a community center was needed, and the City could make it happen without any increase in City income or property taxes. To ensure the community’s support, on the May 2021 ballot City Council asked residents if the City should build a community center. Almost 80% of voters replied with a resounding “Yes.” With this clear directive in hand, the City began an extensive process to design and prepare for the construction of the community center.
