The OSU Campus Partners Student Advisory Board will co-sponsor a public forum on Tuesday, Nov. 30, titled "Speak Up on High Street: A Public Dialogue on Improving the Appearance of Our 'Main Street.'" The forum will begin at 4 p.m. in Buckeye rooms A and B of the Ohio Union, 1739 N. High St.
Ohio State and the City of Columbus have employed MSI Design to prepare a conceptual streetscape plan for High Street from Eleventh to Lane avenues. This plan looks at improvements to the sidewalks, street trees, street lights, signage, street furniture, etc. One goal of the plan is to improve the pedestrian nature of High Street and its relationship to the university and the surrounding neighborhood. The plan also intends to create greater consistency between the east and west sides of High Street.
This forum is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and community members to review the plan's initial recommendations and offer their comments and criticisms. The forum will begin at 4 p.m. with an opportunity to review various designs and conceptual drawings. A more formal presentation will begin at 4:30 p.m. followed by an opportunity for questions. MSI Design staff and others involved with the plan then will stay until 6 p.m. to respond to individual questions and comments.
