Residents Asked to Share Feedback on Scioto Trail Expansion via Online Open House

COLUMBUS, OH – Columbus’ parks and trails add to the quality of life in our community. Columbus Recreation and Parks Department continually invests in facilities to ensure residents have access to these vital resources.

The Scioto Trail currently ends at West Fifth Avenue (view a map of the Scioto Trail). Plans for future trail construction leave a gap in the regional trail network between West Fifth Avenue and Griggs Park. Columbus Recreation and Parks is conducting a study to explore ways to address the gap and improve walking and biking facilities in the study area (see map below). 

Public input is vital to that study, and the department is hosting an online open house to gather feedback from residents. This online open house is being held in lieu of an in-person meeting to afford residents the opportunity to provide feedback from the safety of their homes during the public health emergency.

Who:              Residents who live and work in the study area, and who use the regional trail network.

What:             The online open house shares more information about the study through a pre-recorded presentation that residents can view at any time and provides a way for residents to provide feedback about the project.

Where:           Online

When:            The initial comment period runs through Friday, Sept. 4. A summary of comments will be posted on the project website following the comment period.
