  1. Three Affordable Housing Developments Moving Forward The City of Columbus announced this week that three affordable housing developments in Franklinton will be moving forward. The projects, which will bring a total of 150 units to three different sites in the neighborhood, will offer senior housing, apartments and single family homes that will be affordable to those making between 30% and 80% of the area median income . Each of the projects will utilize gap financing from the city as well as a relatively new tax credit program from the Ohio Housing Finance Agency called FHAct50. The program targets neighborhoods that are seeing an influx of new market-rate housing. The three projects are featured in a new Franklinton area plan (PDF), released this month. Similar to the city’s Envision Hilltop and One Linden plans, the new Franklinton document contains information on the neighborhood’s history, as well as data on employment, crime, transportation and other topics.

  2. Mark Wahlberg's Columbus plans include 2nd dealership, 1st Wahlbergers burger joint Mark Wahlberg is expanding more than the auto business in Central Ohio. ... After Wahlberg teased that they would be opening a Wahlburgers “sooner rather than later” in Columbus, Nino Cutraro, a Detroit restaurateur and partner in the restaurant business, said the first Wahlburgers in Columbus is coming to the Hollywood Casino. That makes geographic sense given the close proximity to the dealerships. “As soon as this (coronavirus crisis) is over,” Cutraro said, estimating another two or three months.

  7. Hudson and Sullivant Get Redesigns, Other Street Projects Moving Forward The City of Columbus is gearing up for a busy spring and summer of road work. Although the long term impact of the coronavirus pandemic is unknown – and some state projects are already being impacted because of a projected loss of gas tax funds – work is continuing on the local projects that were already in the city’s pipeline. Work started earlier this month on $10 million worth of improvements to Sullivant Avenue, including new sidewalks, improved lighting and traffic signals, and bump outs to slow cars and shorten the distance for pedestrians crossing the street. A redesign of Hudson Street between I-71 and Cleveland Avenue is also moving forward. The project, which was first announced by Mayor Ginther at his State of the City address in February, calls for a new sidewalk on the north side of the street and a 12-foot-wide shared use path along the south side. New curbs, street trees and traffic lights are also a part of the project, along with a new water main and storm sewers.

  23. Work Continues on New Region at the Columbus Zoo The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium is getting ready for some new residents. While the zoo is closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic, construction is still underway on the zoo’s newest exhibits – Adventure Cove and Jack Hanna’s Animal Encounters Village. “We have animals that we need to get over to the Columbus Zoo so we feel this is an essential area that needs to be finished,” says Columbus Zoo President & CEO Tom Stalf. The sea lions and seals that will inhabit Adventure Cove have lived at a satellite facility in Florida for the last two to three years. Stalf says once they have the green light, they will drive the animals up to Columbus. More below: https://www.columbusunderground.com/work-continues-on-new-exhibit-at-the-columbus-zoo-sp1
