A recent Columbus Dispatch editorial, "Weinland Park effort will pay off," featured Greater Ohio's study of investments in the Weinland Park neighborhood:
"The community may have a clearer picture soon of what’s working. [...] The nonprofit Greater Ohio Policy Center has been evaluating the Weinland Park efforts undertaken since 2007.
Hard data on which programs and improvements really are improving quality of life will help guide all the efforts and spending yet to come.
It’s a smart way to avoid wasting time, effort and money.
And it’s another indication that the Columbus community is determined to win the battle for Weinland Park."
GOPC is currently undertaking analyses of investments in Columbus' Weinland Park and near South Side neighborhoods, and plans to release the findings by the end of the year. This research is being supported by The Columbus Foundation.
