The Fair Oaks Community Development Corporation Finance and Facilities committees held a joint meeting at the mall earlier this month. Mary Ferdon, the city’s director of administration, explains that a third committee, called a Design Committee, has been formed. It has nine members and is chaired by Mark Levett, Columbus Parks Board president. This new committee is set to meet on Friday.
That body will be charged with coming up with a master plan on how to proceed with the property. City officials have long said that hopes for the site include an indoor sports complex and a CRH-run clinic of some kind.
Ferson says Friday’s meeting will largely be organizational. It is at 3:30 p.m. inside the mall. The meeting is open to the public.
