Three members of the Clintonville Area Commission will hold an open house Monday, July 21.
The gathering, called by Daniel B. Miller of District 4, Dana Bagwell of District 5 and Jason Meek of District 7, will run from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the meeting room of the Columbus Metropolitan Library’s Whetstone branch, 3909 N. High St.
“As commissioners, it is important for us to remain in contact with the neighbors we represent,” Miller, who was just elected to a second term as chairman, said in a prepared statement announcing the open house. “We welcome the opportunity to hear from our neighbors in an informal setting regarding any subject they choose.”
The trio, all of whom joined the area commission in July 2012, represent three contiguous districts in the central part of the neighborhood.
Bagwell, who had been secretary for the panel but was elected vice chairwoman at the July 10 organizational meeting, is head of the zoning and variance committee.
Meek, who is chairman of the safety and crime committee, was elected at that meeting to a second straight term as treasurer.
Miller’s District 4 is bounded on the south by Orchard Lane and Oakland Park Avenue, on the east by the railroad tracks along Interstate 71, on the north by Arden Road and Hollenback Drive and on the west by the Olentangy River.
Bagwell’s District 5 is bounded on the south by Arden Road, on the east by the railroad tracks, on the north by Glenmont Road and on the west by North High Street.
District 7, represented by Meek, is bounded on the south by Glenmont Road, on the east by the railroad tracks, on the north by Garden Road and on the west by North High Street.
The Clintonville Area Commission was created under the Columbus City Charter in 1974. The purpose of the panel, according to the charter is to “afford additional voluntary citizen participation in the decision-making in an advisory capacity and to facilitate communications, understanding and cooperation between neighborhood groups, city officials and developers.”
