Explanation
This ordinances authorizes Columbus City Council to enter into a grant agreement with the Northland Area Business Association in support of the 161 Task Force.

The 161 Task Force of the Northland Area Business Association is requesting funds to organize the businesses and land owners along the East Dublin Grandville corridor from Huntley Road to Ponderosa Blvd for a more sustainable maintenance and beautification program of the 980,000 square feet of green space.

In an effort to rebrand the area, the 161 Task Force has overseen major greenspace improvements along the roadway over the past 23 months. The present model is working, but it is not sustainable over a long period of time. The goal is to inform the businesses and landowners of the importance of organizing and implementing a course of action to care for the corridor. In order to accomplish this, an accurate database with contact information of the decision makers must be compiled.

Fiscal Impact: Funding is available within the Neighborhood Initiatives subfund.
