Explanation

The Far West Area Commission has requested that Columbus City Code Section 3111.22 be amended to reflect the current complete name of the organization.
Following the guidance provided by the City Attorney’s Office, the Commission approved a resolution by a vote of 7 to 0 at their August 25, 2020 meeting that specifically requested: “that the City of Columbus create and approve legislation amending the ordinance or otherwise creating new legislation for a new ordinance re-naming the “Far West Area Commission” to “Far West Side Area Commission” as included in the initial petition and bylaws.”
