To Recognize and Celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Greater South East Area Commission and its Contributions to the City of Columbus.

 

Body

WHEREAS, the Greater South East Area Commission was founded in 2015, following the hard work of the Greater South East Area Task Force, and has gone on to hold over fifty public meetings; and

WHEREAS, the Greater South East Area Commission works with local businesses to identify their needs to administer a Shop Local campaign; and

 

WHEREAS, the Greater South East Area Commission is driven by a single goal - to do their part in making the community a better place for all with community input as well as collaboration between commissioners; and

 

WHEREAS, the Greater South East Area Commission continues to serve businesses, neighborhoods and residents through its support of initiatives that affect positive and everlasting change in their community; now, therefore

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF COLUMBUS:
