An amendment to the South Linden Neighborhood Plan (2003) is available under "Documents" to the right. It provides land use and urban design policy guidance as well as development guidelines to inform future development decisions within the planning area. It has now been adopted by Columbus City Council.
The South Linden planning area is located north-northeast of downtown Columbus, bounded on the north by E. Hudson Street; on the east by the former railroad right-of-way east of Billiter Boulevard, and 25th, Joyce, and 17th avenues; on the south by the Norfolk Southern rail corridor; and on the west by Interstate 71.
Area plans and amendments are based on participatory planning processes using consensus-based techniques and technical analyses.
This web page provides a variety of material about the amendment and the amendment process.
Following a series of three public workshops, a public open house was held on the evening of Thursday, October 6, 2011 at the Clarence D. Lumpkin Point of Pride Building, 1410 Cleveland Ave., for planning process participants to share and discuss with the general public the North Linden and South Linden Neighborhood Plans Amendment. Staff has been unable to secure a recommendation of approval from the North Linden Area Commission and, therefore, has revised the draft to address only South Linden. (See "Documents" to the right.)
On September 18, 2012 the South Linden Area Commission recommended adoption of the South Linden Neighborhood Plan Amendment and on October 11, 2012 the Columbus Development Commission endorsed it as well.
The South Linden Neighborhood Plan Amendment was adopted by Columbus City Council (Ordinance 2313-2012) on November 12, 2012. Congratulations and thank you to all those who contributed their time and effort to the planning process. South Linden Neighborhood Plan Amendment
