161 TASK FORCE: Councilmembers Michael Stinziano, Shannon Hardin and Mitchell J. Brown sponsored ordinance 3290-2017 to enter into a grant agreement with the Northland Area Business Association to support the 161 Task Force. This group is requesting funds to organize the businesses and land owners along the East Dublin Granville corridor from Huntley Road to Ponderosa Blvd to continue a more sustainable maintenance and beautification program of the 980,000 square feet of green space.
The grant funding was approved in the amount of $15,000 to be used to communicate and connect with business owners and property owners. The goal is to improve the appearance of the 161 Corridor, which will help the business community grow and prosper, ultimately bringing development to the area and improving quality of life.
