Explanation
This ordinance authorizes Columbus City Council to enter into a grant agreement with the Franklinton Board of Trade in support of the organization’s efforts to establish a Special Improvement District.

The funding will support the creation of a Special Improvement District (SID) for the Franklinton Neighborhood. Franklinton’s revitalization is progressing at a steady pace and there exists a need to formalize services that will support a clean and safe neighborhood. The goal of the SID will be to hire ambassadors to collect litter and clear weeds along the sidewalks of the primary West Broad corridor from the eastern edge down to Franklinton Square Shopping Plaza. In addition to the main corridor, the SID boundaries would include what is known as East Franklinton and the Mount Carmel West campus.

The SID intends to leverage a partnership between the Franklinton Board of Trade, Mount Carmel Outreach and Jordan’s Crossing Resource Center. The SID funds will allow for the hiring of residents from the Franklinton neighborhood to perform the SID services while simultaneously allowing for the engagement of homeless camps. The SID will offer employment opportunities and wrap around services that include health and hygiene education from Mount Carmel Outreach and skills training for more advanced employment opportunities from Jordan’s Crossing Resource Center.

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

Emergency action is requested in order to avoid any delay in organizing activities.
