Nick Cipiti, president of the Northwest Civic Association board of trustees, late last month canceled the first meeting of 2018.

In a Dec. 27 email, Cipiti wrote that the session that was to have been held Jan. 3 has been called off.

“There are no zoning issues this month, and there will be some trustees unable to attend,” Cipiti said. “I hope the committee chairs will take the opportunity to meet with their groups and continue to make progress on their projects.”

The initial meeting of the year for the board will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3, at the Meadow Park Church of God, 2425 Bethel Road.

A tentative guest speaker for that session, according to Cipiti, will be a representative of Dublin City Schools. He said the district’s interest in what happens to the Sheep Farm site, a large section of land near the Ohio State University Airport that is up for potential development, was the reason for inviting the representative.
