Your thoughts on Fair Oaks Mall plans sought tonight

You have another chance tonight to give the city of Columbus your thoughts on what should happen at the Fair Oaks Mall site.

This is the second of four planned public input sessions guiding the future plans for the now city-owned mall property on 25th Street. The city of Columbus along with help from Columbus Regional Health and Heritage Fund bought the mall property near the end of last year. The goal is to move some Columbus Parks and Recreation functions to the mall property, to develop sports and recreation opportunities and to use the facility for community wellness purposes.

The corporation set up by the city to oversee the mall operations, has contracted with a company called MKSK to develop master plans for the property.

Tonight’s session will be from 6 to 8 p.m. at the mall.
