Mayor Ben’s Four Things Friday – 5/12

Mayor Ben’s “Four Things Friday”
Here are a few things happening in Bexley that aren’t otherwise covered in this weeks’ Blast.
Have a great weekend! – BK

We’ve been working closely with COHatch to support their proposal to rehab the building at 2691 East Main Street and create a modern, attractive shared office/co-working environment there.  Excited to see this project move forward!

City Council was busy (as always) this week: among other things, they approved two key pieces of legislation, including financing the Main Street TIF parks projects and updating the City’s Community Reinvestment Area ordinance to modernize incentives for housing in Bexley’s commercial corridors.

At yesterday’s groundbreaking for the Commonwealth Park Pond, Council President Troy Markham took the controls of the city excavator and broke ground on the signature piece of the upcoming west Commonwealth arboretum and botanical walk.  To top off our tour of upcoming Commonwealth projects, we had a special visit from Ohio School of Falconry’s Joe Dorian and met Henson the Eurasian Eagle Owl, Jaeger the Peregrine Falcon, and Sedosa the Harris’ Hawk!

Sometimes it’s the small things that delight.  Earlier this week I was enjoying the setting sun and the quiet sounds of the neighborhood from a backyard adirondack chair when I was regaled by the distant melody of our resident bagpiper practicing in the distance.  A year or so ago I followed his music to a garage, where he was practicing, to thank him in person.  Our bagpiper friend always puts a smile on my face. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
