Explanation
This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to enter into a Capital Improvement Project Agreement with the Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed (FLOW) in support of constructing a pedestrian bridge over Slyh Run.

The construction of a pedestrian bridge over Slyh Run will connect the nearby neighborhood to Cranbrook Elementary and the 10 wooded acres surrounding the stream. Teachers, students, and families can access the woods, stream, and prairie as an outdoor education laboratory, and students can use the bridge as a safe route to school.

The city is joined in its support of the project with a Better Together grant from the Columbus Foundation. FLOW will administer the construction of the bridge and will retain maintenance responsibilities upon completion via an agreement with Columbus City Schools. The city will reimburse FLOW up to a maximum of $20,000.00 for costs incurred through construction.

Fiscal Impact: Funding is available within the Development Taxable Bond Fund.
