PROS MASTER PLAN

Community Center Expansion Planning Process Moving to Phase II This time next year, dirt is scheduled to move on the Westerville Community Center Expansion Project. That’s right, in summer 2018 construction begins on the expansion which is expected to add more physical space to the existing building. Thanks to a heavy public outreach and participation program, more than 3,000 residents, visitors and patrons have been involved in one or more of the survey, focus group and public session efforts to provide feedback on the project. Last June, Westerville City Council reviewed a series of recommendations, initial site plans and concept documents, moving the project into schematic design focused on these principles: Improve the user experience. Provide flexible (multi-use) space to meet the current and projected future user needs, including the integration of space for older adults into the Westerville Community Center. Complete the project within budget. (See How It’s Funded, page 5) Characteristic of Westerville’s nationally recognized parks and recreation system, we are on pace (or ahead in many cases) with many of the trends in across the country and those in comparable communities. Site visits were also made to other facilities in Ohio, and staff has extensively researched demographic and market data and trends to prepare the program plan for the facility. Blending this information with resident feedback, the schematic design reflects the following priorities: MOST IMPORTANT AMENITIES TO EXPAND

GYMNASIUM

LEISURE POOL

Public health trends (in some cases, facts) have also influenced our project, as well as every health and wellness facility constructed in the U.S. in the next decade. These factors are also strategic priorities for the Westerville Parks & Recreation Department, reflected in the programming designed for residents and patrons in more than 2,500 classes and services annually.

HEALTHY ACTIVE LIFESTYLES

Westerville Parks & Recreation is committed to using the parks system to help the people we serve get and stay healthy. These facility components may include health care partnerships (rehab, physical therapy, wellness services, group exercise), non-traditional tracks (providing a greater mental and physical experience) and program therapy pools.

ADVENTURE RECREATION

Non-traditional recreation opportunities are in demand. These types of activities provide physical, mental and health experiences and elevate the recreational challenge.

MULTI-GENERATIONAL PROGRAMMING

Baby Boomers are more active than older adults of previous generations. They demand different experiences and facilities that match their interests. Social gathering space is important to the active older adult. “If this project has been on your radar, this is a great time to see the details,” said Randy Auler, Director of Parks and Recreation. “Every resident and Community Center member will see themselves in this project. We are introducing new programs in health and fitness and providing a continuation of services in health care that will offer a new level of quality and convenience. The best part is we’re delivering on what residents asked: feedback from our community as expressed in the survey, through focus groups and in public sessions.” The schematic design phase of the project is expected to occur over the next 9-12 months, culminating in construction/bid documents in early 2018. When construction begins late summer/early fall of 2018, the process is expected to take 12-15 months. A dedication of the newly expanded building would be sometime in fall 2019.

HOW IT’S FUNDED

Anyone who pays income tax in the City of Westerville, regardless of residency, contributes to a quarter percent (0.25%) income tax deduction that is dedicated to the community parks system, including parks, green spaces and facilities. This has been in place since 1998, when voters approved the Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces (PROS) Master Plan to fund the development, maintenance and operations of the Westerville parks and recreation system. The PROS income tax was approved for renewal by Westerville voters in 2014.

Aroundt h e COMPLETION OF STATE & SCHROCK IMPROVEMENTS

City

The July 2017 completion of the State & Schrock Improvements Project was a welcome milestone for City residents and visitors alike. Now that nearly all the orange barrels are gone, the enhancements made to the intersection of State Street and Schrock Road are more evident. Improvements include the relocation of overhead utilities to underground facilities, sidewalk upgrades, planting of street trees, bike lanes on Schrock Road, street lights and traffic sign upgrades. The developments made through this phase represented an investment of roughly $30 million in the past eight years to revitalize the area. For more information about improvement projects around the City, visit www.westerville.org/construction.

HANBY PARK IMPROVEMENT PROJECT COMING SOON

An updated path system, spray pad and playground are just a few new features coming to Hanby Park this fall. Given Hanby Park’s proximity to the Westerville Public Library, Uptown area and the Ohio to Erie Trail, Westerville Parks & Recreation set out to design park enhancements that create a new signature space near some of the community’s most popular sites and recreational attractions. Hanby Park is currently home to Presidential Oak Grove and the Train Depot. Presidential Oak Grove, a memorial to Presidents who resided in the state of Ohio, continues to grow as part of the new park design. The Train Depot, designed to resemble an 1800s-era train station, provides a eco-friendly and alternative transportation opportunity for the neighborhood in Uptown Westerville to connect to the cities of Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland via the Ohio to Erie Trail. New to the park will be a picnic area adjacent to the Train Depot, a new playground with art structure and swings, spray pad and benches. The park is scheduled to be complete by late summer-early fall. For updates on the park’s progress, visit www.westerville.org/parks.

Welcoming Hotels

to Westerville The South State Street Corridor revitalization will continue with the opening of the Aloft Hotel, located at 32 Heatherdown Dr., on Wednesday, November 1. Boasting 1,600 sq. ft. of stylish event space, the 100-room Aloft Hotel will provide an attractive and modern place for visitors to enjoy local shops and restaurants. Further north, construction is still underway on the Marriott Renaissance hotel in the Westar-area. This 222-room hotel will add a impressive 15,000 sq. ft. of space perfect for large conferences, weddings and other exciting events and is expected to open in spring 2018. The arrival of these hotels serves a signal to surrounding businesses and visitors that Westerville is a great place to stay and play.

CITY OF WESTERVILLE “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” Theme of Fire Prevention Week Westerville Division of Fire invites community to open house Sunday, October 8

In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between escaping safely from a fire and tragedy. That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme promoted by the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why every family needs to have an escape plan. The Westerville Division of Fire will recognize Fire Prevention Week from October 8-14 through a series of public education efforts and events to help promote the importance of having a plan for escaping a fire should one occur in your home.

Westerville Electric Division Celebrates Public Power Week Oct 1-7

Public Power Week, celebrated the first full week in October each year, is an opportunity for public power providers to celebrate the distinct advantages from locally owned and distributed power utility. As a Public Power Provider, Westerville is committed to providing the best utility services for the community, now and in the future. Local ownership means all resources go back into the community, strengthening the economy and helping neighbors keep energy costs low. With a locally owned, municipal utility, Westerville has local control over how electricity is provided to homes and businesses.

WFD and NFPA promote these key messages: Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit. Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out. Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them. Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find. Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building. http://www.nfpa.org Don’t miss the annual family-friendly Fire Prevention Week Open House on Sunday, October 8 from 1-4 p.m. at all three WFD fire houses. Activities will include a hands-on truck display that will include the Ladder truck, Rescue Engine and medic vehicles (not in service), demonstrations, tours, meet and greet and a show featuring our very own puppet troupe, “The Safety Bunch.” Fire Station 111 400 W.

Here are just a few ways the Westerville Electric Division provides value: Accountability to the residents we serve Affordable electric prices for your benefit, not the benefit of corporate shareholders Measured success by dollars invested in the local community Keeps decision-making in the local community where it carries out the community’s goals, such as investing in local economic development, infrastructure, energy conservation, renewable energy and safety Provides more efficient utility management with local scrutiny over electric operations; Provides local jobs Provides the excellent service, reliability and responsiveness that comes with using local service personnel Provides a revenue source for the municipality

The Westerville Electric Division is grateful for the support of the community and encourages residents and businesses to visit the Division’s information tables at the September and October Fourth Friday events in celebration of Public Power Week. Customers are also encouraged to call (614) 901-6700 or email electric@westerville.org with comments and questions.

Open Burning within City Limits Facts from the Westerville Division of Fire

The Westerville Division of Fire (WFD) is often asked about the rules regarding open burning within the City limits. The City of Westerville has an ordinance that regulates open burning. By definition, open burning is the burning of any materials wherein air contaminants resulting from combustion are emitted directly into the air, without passing through a stack or chimney from an enclosed chamber. An enclosed chamber is one which has only those ducts, stacks or chimneys necessary to provide combustion air and to permit the escape of exhaust gas. The exception to open burning includes cooking food for consumption in a manufactured device specifically designed for the purposes of cooking (i.e. a grill or smoker). Only dried, seasoned wood can be burned.

Fires created outside of or not contained in a commercially made device with a stack or chimney are considered illegal and require permission and a burn permit from WFD and possibly the EPA. WFD reserves the right to extinguish any fire based on the Ohio Fire Code. If you have any questions or concerns regarding open burns or you would like to request a burn permit please contact the Westerville Division of Fire Prevention Bureau by visiting www.westerville.org/fire or call (614) 901-6600. To report an open burn 24-hours a day call the Westerville Fire Non-Emergency Number at (614) 882-2213.

Cops & Kids Day

A Sure Hit for Kids of All Ages

If your child’s eyes light up when they hear police sirens or see a helicopter flying overhead, they are sure to love Westerville Cops & Kids Day. In its 23rd year, the City of Westerville Division of Police hosts more than 40 agencies from central Ohio bringing cruisers, helicopters, motorcycles, tactical vehicle and K-9’s to interact with and educate children about law enforcement. Activities will include arts and crafts, inflatable gyms and hands-on activities including the always-popular “Dunk-a-Cop” tank. Kids may cast their vote on the best DARE car and police cruiser, dunk a uniformed police officer in the dunk tank, and play games for free prizes. They will also interact with “PC” The Patrol Car and the “Officer Friendly” inflatable police officer. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early— the first 1,500 children will receive a free gift. The 2017 Cops & Kids Day will once again be held in conjunction with the Great Westerville Food Truck Fest on Sunday, September 10. The roadway on County Line Rd between Vesper Way and Cleveland Ave. will be closed for the event and provide easy access to the Food Truck Fest located at Nationwide Children’s Close to Home, 455 Executive Campus Drive.

Westerville Public Services PLANS 2017 LEAF COLLECTION PROGRAM The Westerville Public Service Department will collect leaves throughout the City on five occasions this fall, from October 16 to December 22. Residents will have at least one pick up during the seven to 10 days after each assigned date to place leaves behind the curb. Completed streets and updates in schedule will be available at www.westerville.org/leafcollection. To make leaf collection more efficient, prevent pollution and preserve parking, the Public Service Department is providing the following recommendations: • Have all leaves raked to the tree lawn (in between the sidewalk and the street), but not in the street, the evening before the start of your collection period. • Leaf piles should be free of large sticks, twigs, pumpkins and any trash or debris that could cause damage to the leaf collection equipment and injuries to personnel. • Vehicles should not be parked in front of leaves during collection times. Leaves may be placed in paper, biodegradable bags or yard waste containers for the normal Monday yard waste collection should a resident decide not to wait for the scheduled collection time.

2017 COLLECTION SCHEDULE To ensure leaves get collected in a timely fashion, the Public Service Department is requesting leaves be raked to the specified location by 7 a.m. on the dates below. Zone map may be found at www.westerville.org/leafcollection. ROUND 1 2 3 4 5

The Westerville Parks Foundation works cooperatively with the Westerville Parks and Recreation Department to secure philanthropic support to create and sustain parks, trails, public spaces, and programs for future generations.

REMEMBERING A WESTERVILLE SON BY PAYING-IT-FORWARD

The Thomas James Knox Memorial Rink “Thomas was an angel,” said Jim Knox. “I know most parents think that about their children, but he really was a great young man.” Thomas Knox spent the last evening of his life playing hockey, the sport he loved since he picked up a hockey stick at age six. After scoring two goals for his junior varsity team, he stayed up late, talking and laughing with his family, and then went to bed. Thomas passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, in his sleep on December 13, 2015 at age 14. Thomas was born and raised in Westerville and a freshman at St. Charles Preparatory School, where friends, teachers and coaches miss his quick wit, hardworking attitude and perpetual smile. Jim and Lisa Knox, Thomas’s parents, resolved to turn their grief into an opportunity to do good for the whole Westerville community. After considering different options, they decided a public rink would provide the most access and create a legacy for Thomas that would last forever. Jim and Lisa approached Westerville Parks and Recreation Director Randy Auler last year and began

working with the Department to create concepts for an outdoor, inline (rollerblade) hockey rink at Alum Creek South Park to honor Thomas. The location is a perfect fit, as Thomas frequently visited the skate park. The family feels confident in the ability of the City of Westerville to develop a high-quality outdoor rink because of the pride the Department takes in their parks and facilities. “Where else do you have this beautiful park system?” said Jim. Knowing the Thomas James Knox Memorial Rink will be taken care of for future generations is a source of solace for the family in their efforts to keep Thomas’ memory alive. The Thomas James Knox Memorial Rink will serve the Westerville community by offering a central location for youth to be introduced to hockey as a team sport, providing space for community programming to develop the skills of players of all ages, and creating a public space for current players to sharpen their talents. The Westerville Parks Foundation is currently accepting donations for the project. To date, $162,000 has been raised from generous donors for development and construction. Additional funds are needed to complete the project and add facility amenities. Groundbreaking is anticipated in Winter 2017-2018. With your support, the new outdoor hockey facility will celebrate Thomas’ life and bring enjoyment to children and adults in our community for years to come. Visit www.westervilleparksfoundation.org to contribute to the Thomas James Knox Memorial Rink fund.

Local information, including the weather forecast, is also a button accessible from the welcome screen. Lastly, an easy option to provide feedback on customer service has been added. One of the primary features of the app is an enhanced service request function. Users can launch the app anytime they are out and about to report an issue, make a request or alert City staff to a problem. To help describe the situation, users can take a photo as part of the submission. The request is electronically dispatched to the appropriate department and users can follow its progress to a speedy resolution. Powered by the Accela platform, the app also uses the City’s mobile website, which is optimized for visibility on tablets, smartphones and other devices. The platforms work together to keep information, alerts and news from the City up-to-date, consistent and user-friendly.

Westerville Parks and Recreation

EXPANDS

Access to Recreation Program For nearly 10 years, Westerville Parks and Recreation has served teens and adults with special needs through programs such as attending OSU sporting events, visiting the Franklin Park Conservatory, bowling, mini-golf, movies, and the popular Access Splash Party. This fall, the Access to Recreation will change to Access to Therapeutic Recreation and grow to include weekly programming focusing on life skills, social skills, leisure ability, fitness and wellness, creativity, self respect, confidence, independence and more with the overall goal of increasing quality of life. Everyone deserves the opportunity to participate in leisure activities and develop new skills. The Westerville Parks and Recreation hired Lindsay Buis, a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS), this summer to head the Access to Therapeutic Recreation program. This program focuses on programming for youth and adults with various disabilities. “Through experience and education, Lindsay has the skills, ideas, and enthusiasm to ensure the program continues to offer many and new opportunities,” said Dave Pace, Parks and Recreation Youth Program Supervisor. “Her goal is to help participants reach their goals.” Buis has already been a huge influence in participants lives. “I am looking forward to the additional programs; especially the life skills. I think this is a great program and feel very lucky to be able to have Cody attend,” said Cody Limbach’s mom, Terese.

It is nice to get to see my friends outside of the Special Olympic sporting events. I’m looking forward to trying out some of the new programs. -CODY LIMBACH

Westerville Parks and Recreation offers many types of classes for all ages and abilities. Did you know all programs offered are inclusive? Whether you choose to participate in the Therapeutic Recreation programs or general programs, staff will work with you to make the most of every activity. For more information or to get involved as a participant or a volunteer, please contact the Adaptive and Inclusion Specialist at (614) 901-6500.

It’s exciting to be a part of Access to Recreation and to go on the outings together, especially the OSU games! We all have a seriously fun time together.

“The (Access) program is a godsend. It’s fantastic! The bonding process is amazing, long-time members are eager to help the newer members. On one hand it’s a very tight knit group but on the other hand it’s very welcoming to all the new members of the program.” said Matt’s dad, Jerry.

-MATT BALE

In the words of actress Emma Thompson: “Being disabled should not mean being disqualified from having access to every aspect of life.”

NEW TREE REPLACEMENT

provides full year of enjoyment Tree Talk articles are presented by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.

Over the course of the last 10 years, more than 1,200 ash trees were removed and replaced with a variety of species to counter the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) infestation. A majority of these trees lined streets throughout Westerville, affecting the tree canopy for which the City is known. The replaced trees are beginning to take root and recapture some of the lost beauty of the once canopied streets. An added benefit of the new trees is the increase of tree diversity among the population. As part of the implemented management plan, multiple varieties of tree were used as replacements on each street. With this diversity, the overall health of the tree canopy is much better prepared for the possibility of future unknown pests. Should there be another species-specific pest found, the loss to each individual street will be much less drastic. Trees come into leaf, flower, fall color and leaf drop at different times throughout the year. The diversity of the newly planted trees now allows for the enjoyment of extended bloom times and fall color display on streets and throughout neighborhoods. In addition, the many species have specific qualities or characteristics, providing for more variety and viewing pleasure while traveling throughout the City. The City of Westerville EAB Management Plan and funding, completed in 2017, helped manage tree loss and ensure EAB containment with minimal overall damage to the tree canopy of the City. Additional information may be found at www.westerville.org or by contacting the Urban Forestry Manager at (614) 901-6598.

AQUATICS WATER AEROBICS

PARKS AND RECREATION BRINGS PADDLEBOARD FITNESS TO WESTERVILLE There is never a bad time to try out a new fitness activity. Last year, the Westerville Parks and Recreation Department introduced paddleboarding classes and continue to expand the program. Paddleboarding is trending: it’s one of the fastest growing sports in the country and can be done indoors or outdoors. It’s also easy enough that almost anyone can pick up the basics in no time.

AQUATICS This fall, Westerville Parks and Recreation will be offering an indoor Paddleboard class at the Community Center. See page 31 for details. No matter what your fitness goal, paddleboarding is a great way to improve your quality of life. For more information, visit www.westerville.org/recreationguide or call the Community Center front desk at (614) 901-6500.

Pisces Paddleboard Fitness is helping spread the popularity of the sport in Ohio by using a modified paddleboard, called a FitMat, that is wider and offers more stability. Classes offer paddleboard yoga-inspired fitness for all levels of fitness. Paddleboard Fitness classes offer the opportunity to practice yoga and develop fitness on water, challenging your balance and muscles in an entirely different way than on land. “You can take a class and never even have to get wet,” said Jolie Little-Claytor of Pisces Paddleboard Fitness. “It is a great way to keep up your core balance and strength skills staying on a board year round.”

SEWING, A LOST ART? NOT WITH WESTERVILLE PARKS AND RECREATION

CREATIVE ARTS

In the 1950s, it was hard to find someone who couldn’t sew. Today, people purchase everything and only rely on their grandmothers or other older relatives to create special clothing, blankets/quilts and even toy animals when necessary. In a generation where clothing, blankets and toys are so readily available and prices are relatively affordable, Is sewing becoming a lost art? Westerville Parks and Recreation believes sewing to be a worthwhile hobby. In the honor of National Sewing Month in September and with the help of Inspiring U, Westerville Parks and Recreation is bringing it back with three new classes offered this fall. The Learn to Sew class for adults will give instruction on how to use a sewing machine, what fabrics to use and how to lay-out a pattern. For those that know how to use a sewing machine but have not sewn in some time or just need a refresher, the T-shirt Quilt class will provide instruction on how to transform memories into something that can be used for years to come.

Also offered will be a one day class that will expand the love and knowledge of hand sewing to youth. Participants will learn a Blanket Stitch to create their very own travel pillow out of fleece and stuffing. Sewing may require some time and patience, but quickly becomes a favorite pastime for a long weekend or even gift giving. For more information on the above classes, see page 46.

NEW LEAGUES COMING TO HOFF WOODS PARK

HEALTHY ACTIVE LIFESTYLE

Two new Adult Sports Leagues will be introduced at Hoff Woods Park this fall. Starting in September, a Sand Volleyball League and Kickball League will be joining the fall Men’s and Coed Softball Leagues. “League sports are very popular in Westerville,” said Darcy Baxter, Sports Program Manager for the City of Westerville Parks and Recreation Department. “There is never a shortage of teams interested in playing.”

Scan this QR code with your smartphone or camera phone to be instantly connected to the Programs/Classes page of the website.

Sand Volleyball has had continued growth in the Central Ohio area. The Westerville leagues will consist of CoRec 6’s and Competitive 4’s and be played at the Hoff Woods Park sand pits. Kickball is no longer an activity just for kids. Just south of the sand pits are the Hoff Woods Park softball fields where the new Wednesday Night Coed Kickball League will begin. Teams of 12 will play this fun sport that will bring back fond memories of the lazy days of youth. Parks and Recreation hasn’t forgotten about the youth in Westerville. On October 8, Westerville will host the first-annual Coed Wiffle Ball Tournament for youth in grades 6-12. Additional information on adult leagues may be found on page 67. Youth Wiffle Ball Tournament information may be found on page 65.
