An open house has been scheduled to update the public on several initiatives of the Big Darby Accord.

The open house is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2, at Westland High School, 146 Galloway Road.

"There will be information on open space preservation, stream restoration, revenue generation and disbursement, town center planning and innovative zoning efforts," said township administrator Tracy Hatmaker. "We hope everyone can come out."

Hatmaker said the open house is designed to be a progress report on a wide range of accord initiatives. It also marks the end of the second year since the accord became reality, he said.

"Nothing like this has ever been done in central Ohio with multi jurisdictions," Hatmaker said.

Prairie Township's partner jurisdictions in the accord include Franklin County, the city of Columbus, Brown and Pleasant townships and most recently the city of Hilliard. It also includes stake-holders such as citizen groups and agencies interested in conservation, as well as building and development interests, Hatmaker said.

"Members of the public who attend this open house will have a chance to hear from a wide range of the interests that are involved in implementing the accord," he said.

The open house will feature displays and brief presentations centered on the Accord initiatives. Individuals who are working in these areas will be available to discuss those initiatives, recent progress and future directions, according to Hatmaker.
