1970 - 1990 Eleven

Prepared by the Planning Division Department of Development City of Columbus

M. E. S nsenbrenner, Mayor City of Columbus

G. Phillip Department

Dolan, Director of Development

The Area Plan series constitutes Part II, Section B of the Columbus Plan outlined on the following green page.


Outline of the ColumbusPlan The Columbu~ ~lan comprises three groups of reports identifying the requirements f or gi ving ord~r.and purpose to the City's form and change. Ranging from broad values t? spec~fic pro~rams, the reports are grouped according to three levels of consideration: obJectives and policies, plans and implementation met hods. ' Part I - Objectives and Policies One re port states the objectives and policies that will guide the growth and redevelopment of the City of Columbus. These objectives and policies provide the framework for preparing all other ColumbusPlan reports. To keep pace wi t h both physical changes and shifts in the community's consensus, this report will be updated every two or three years. Part I I - Plans Part I I comprises two types of plans:

function plans and area plans.

Section A - Function Plans Each report in this section provides a city-wide plan for one of these maj or urban functions: land use, communityfacilities, redevelopment, wat er- related facilities, highway transportation, nonhighwaytransportat ion, natural resources, and economic development. Sect ion B - Area Plans In a series of brief reports intended for wide public distribution, the plans of this section discuss the full range of urban functions for each of about thirty areas of four to eight square miles. In all, the thirty areas cover the entire City and vicinities where the City may expand. Part III - Implementation Studies Three types of reports identify the methods for implementing the objectives and polic ies of Part I and the plans of Part II. Sectio n A - HumanResources These propose specific alternatives for solving urban problems in housing, welfare , education , cultural development, pollution control, and other areas not necessaril y or directly related to physical development. Section B - Physical Resources These propose alternative s in the three-dimensiona~ organiza!ion of space, bui l ding materials and technology, and architectural image for specific projects. Section C - Administrative

Resources

These are det ai led, highly technical studies of the budgeting, scheduling, organization of people, and revision or addition of ordinances necessary to carry out particular recommendations of the function or area plans.

POLITICALJURISDICTION The North Linden Area includes two political jurisdictions . This fact is significant since planning and zoning- -whi ch ultimatel y shape the development of land-- are regulated by two separate governing bodies. The area within the City of Columbus is unde r the jurisdiction of the Columbus Department of Development and the City Council, while the area within Franklin Count y is withi n the jurisdiction of the Mid - Ohio Regional Planning Commission and the Franklin County Commissioners.

RECOMMENDATIONS Further1 development in the area should be 1i·mi·ted t o a few vacant P_arce s along I-71 and the redevelopment of properti es located from the first alle y west of Cleveland Avenue east to the Penn Central railroad. Th e type of de~elopment _best suited for these areas is medium-density a_pa~t me~ts, with about fifteen dwelling units per net acre. Possibly a hmLte_d hght-industrial comp le x could also be developed opposite Northern Lights Shopping Center. A few commercial properties should be restored. These include properties alon g Cleveland Avenu e which, if properly restored, could help to revitaliz e the original Linden Heights area and serve as a foca l point for the entire community. But other scatterc>d commercwl uses and commerciall y-zoned areas which threaten the community's future stability and well-b ei ng should be phased out, includin g areas along Hudson Street and Oakland Park. Th e original Linden Heights market area shou ld be restored and a small community recreation center e~tabli.shed. An action program must be initiated to remove deteriorated land uses, to ensure the compa tible and coherent redevelopm ent of th" are"l_- "lnd to preserve and restor e the sound resi.dentLal character of North Linden. Both of these actions can be undertaken through a systematic non-assisted code

A develo pmental learning center containi ng twe lve to fifteen classrooms is proposed fo r the vicinity of Linden Park . Whe n completed, this facility will help r eli eve the overcrowding existing in s ome schools. For instance, the numb er of elementary students will decrease at McGuffey, increasing that schoo l's capacity for junior-high age stude nts.

The prob lem of varying degrees of crowding at different grade levels from year to year will be partly solved by new multipurpose rooms proposed by Columbus B oard of Education. These rooms, which are to be installed at Como and Northridge Elementar y Schools, will more easil y adapt to changing space need s than do traditional classrooms. The Lind e n E l emen t ary School, located south of Denune Avenue and east of Cleveland-W estervi ll e Road, is cut off from part of the district it serves by two major arter i a l s - -Cleveland Avenue and Westerville Road . At present, there seems to be li ttle danger to students since crossings are clearl y marked and appropri a t e tr affic signals have been installed. However, the problem could be e as ily r e sol ved by moving the district's west boundar y to Cleveland Avenue, which c ould b e conveniently done when the developmental learning center is compl e t e d.
