As the City’s most rapidly evolving commercial district, the Lane Avenue Planning Study has been initiated to help the City better understand the impacts of future growth and put in place a framework to guide this growth in a way that best benefits the community. The study process began in August 2019 and is expected to conclude in the Spring of 2020. It includes two phases of citizen engagement, providing opportunities for residents to learn about the significance of the business district for Upper Arlington’s future and to provide input on what they believe should be priority considerations.
The first round of community outreach and information gathering for the Lane Avenue Planning Study is complete. In September, the planning team from OHM Advisors hosted an Open House and two community pop up meetings at locations along the corridor, as well as meeting with area business representatives. In early October, we invited residents to complete a quick, online survey based on the idea boards shared at these meetings, available for anyone who is interested in participating in this process. We received an impressive 1,887 responses.
OHM Advisors has prepared a summary of the first round of community engagement, and it is now available by clicking here.
The second round of engagement is expected to occur at the close of the year, at which time OHM will present its findings and initial recommendations for review and discussion.
