Jeffrey Park and 4th Street District*

This is a Learning-from-Place workshop, pre-registration is required to attend. Please click here to register for this workshop.

Take a walk from the convention through a bit of the short north to one of Columbus’s bet large scale mixed use developments. Located in Italian Village, Jeffrey Park is situated in a 41 acre urban development less than a mile from Downtown Columbus. This ultra-convenient urban living community features retail, office, single-family homes, condominiums & high-end apartment homes. These 41 acres were once home to Jeffrey Manufacturing during the second industrial revolution, so come learn about how it came to be what it is today.

Attendees of this workshop will:

  • Explain how public and private partnerships can revive a neighborhood.
  • Discuss the remediation of land that was once the site of a major industrial complex.

Facilitators: Matt Negron and Steve Bollinger
