Our mission is to impact the East Columbus City gateway community of Brice-Tussing-Scarborough Blvd, through an understanding that area businesses must unite with a mission of recruiting other business to locate/relocate in the BST area, increase and grow existing area businesses, advocate for legislator, city and police support, utilize existing infrastructure through redevelopment of empty buildings and sites, generate funding through business support, city/federal/regional grants, and finally, beautify the area through code enforcement, along with simple trash, foliage cleanup and maintenance.
The Department of Neighborhoods works from a foundation of devoted residents, committed neighborhood leaders and dedicated City workforce to resolve community concerns and tap into neighborhood potential, helping to build a stronger, more equitable Columbus. As the ‘front door’ to the city, the Department of Neighborhoods empowers residents, responds to their needs and protects their rights.
