Update!! From the Mayor’s office, care of Walker:
“The properties controlled by ODOT and CDDC (670 Cap and Rich/High corner) are still being negotiated. The City does not control the properties but is advocating for parking as a use on those spots.
We’ll start striping and signing Gay Street spots today, and the rest will come on line in the next few weeks.”
And the City of Columbus Report, complete with maps.
I wish I could take off of work to go watch this, it’s at 10 AM today (Wednesday)! Exciting!!
NBC4 reports: “The city will open its first scooter parking lot on Gay Street between Third and High.”
