Visiting Columbus, Ohio!

On February 11th, Charles D. Hillman , Scott Scharlach and the wonderful team from Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority made an impact on our community. They hosted a delegation from Toledo to share with us about their experiences, before, during and after the planning and implementation stages of the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative.

It was a truly rewarding experience. Now we are coming back to town to apply what we have learned from our amazing neighbors!

Thank you to all working group members who dedicated their time to the Junction-McClinton Nunn Choice Neighborhoods Plan. Their substantive work will heavily inform the final plan and lead to initiatives that will improve the Junction neighborhood for years to come.

A celebration was held in December to commemorate their work and build energy for the next steps of the Plan. View a gallery of event photos below and read every report on the presentations and documents page HERE

Over the course of the next few months, members will collaborate with their colleagues to come up with solutions that will address the challenges facing the Junction Neighborhood. Results will be released after their work is completed.

Please reach out to the team if you have any questions or comments!
