Type: Ordinance Status: Defeated
File created: 11/19/2007 In control: Public Service & Transportation Committee
On agenda: 11/19/2018 Final action: 11/19/2018
Title: To change the name of that right-of-way currently identified as Hanover Street, from Long Street north to Nationwide Boulevard, to Huntington Park Lane.
Explanation

The Columbus Clippers, the City's Triple-A professional baseball team, will move into their new downtown home for the start of the 2009 baseball season. In 2006 Huntington Bancshares, Inc. ("Huntington") announced their intention to purchase the naming rights for this new stadium, which is now known as Huntington Park. The Public Service Department, Transportation Division, recently received a request from Huntington in conjunction with the Mayor's Office asking that Hanover Street, from Long Street north to Nationwide Boulevard, be renamed as Huntington Park Lane in recognition of the significant investment Huntington has made in the redevelopment of the Arena District and in particular in the baseball stadium. Owners of all affected properties have been notified of this requested change. Owners on the east side of the street have accepted the change. The owner of the property on the west side has not responded. However, this property does not have any structures on it, so no business is affected.
