Our City Council reviewed or took action on the following items during their meeting held on Monday, October 19:
- At Mayor Jadwin's request, City Council approved an ordinance needed to create the "Department of Planning", separating what was the Department of Planning and Development. This will improve overall efficiencies and customer service for residents and businesses.
- An ordinance was introduced for a variance application for a zoning change related to a limited multi-family residential development, Crescent at Central Park (Larry Canini, applicant). A public hearing on this variance application will be held on November 2, at 7 pm. To participate in the Public Hearing please email our City Council clerk: email@example.com.
- Mayor Jadwin spoke briefly on the state of our community as we continue to deal with turmoil on the local, state and federal level.
"Gahanna will continue to fight through what has been a historic year of relentless challenges. Our residents, businesses and stakeholders have demonstrated time and time again that we are a strong community, a community of resiliency. We must focus more on what unites us than what can divide us. I am grateful for our community and what we stand for. Gahanna will be stronger and bettered by the adversity we overcome.”
"Stormwater Awareness Week offers central Ohioans an opportunity to learn how they can take small actions to make a big impact on protecting drinking water,” said Jennifer Fish, director of the Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District.

Last night, City Council members discussed a local mask mandate. Many of our residents have emailed with feedback.
Later today, Mayor Jadwin will be issuing a response on facial coverings. It is our goal to encourage behavior proven to reduce community spread of COVID-19.
