Columbus cancels info meeting set for tonight

The city of Columbus has called off a informational meeting on a proposed development on the west side of the city, originally set for tonight.

The city had scheduled the meeting at Fire Station 5 tonight to talk about the Spring Hills Lake proposal. However, the rezoning of that property was shot down by Columbus City Council at its meeting on Tuesday. More than 100 people turned out to the council meeting, most to protest the proposal citing concerns such as traffic, declining property values and what they said was a lack of communication with developers.

The plan would have brought 40 duplexes to a 10-acre property near Goeller Road, west of Tipton Lakes.

City officials say that tonight’s meeting will not be rescheduled. The proposal is essentially dead for an entire year unless developers make substantial changes.
