John Ivanic, City Council, 645-6798

Councilmember Shannon G. Hardin, chair of the Public Service and Transportation Committee, joined Centennial High School students and Northwest Side residents to celebrate the completion of a sidewalk installation project near the school. The sidewalks were requested by students and civic leaders to increase safety along Godown Road.  

“This project is a great example of how neighborhoods shape infrastructure improvements and capital expenditures in Columbus,” said Councilmember Hardin. “Students discussed the need for sidewalks with councilmembers, all of whom listened, agreed, and have invested in this neighborhood.”  

Columbus City Council passed an ordinance to construct the sidewalks on both sides of Godown Road from Francisco Road to Bethel Road in July 2014.  In 2013, the city installed flashing warning signals to slow motorists traveling in the area.  

“The new sidewalks are a much-needed improvement that will help keep students and pedestrians safe on the Northwest Side,” said John Elhers, president of the Northwest Civic Association. “We are grateful to Columbus City Council for approving the sidewalk project and we will continue to work with the city to make the Northwest Side an even better place to live.”  

Centennial High School student ______ said the sidewalks will make the walk to and from school safer for students.
