Future of neighborhood near foundry site to be discussed Monday

The future of the neighborhood surrounding the former Golden Casting Foundry site will be discussed Monday night. The City of Columbus – Bartholomew County Planning Department will present the plan during an event at the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. Administration Building. City officials say that a presentation will be made at 6 p.m. with an open house to follow.

Jeff Bergman, director of planning, says that this plan has been in the making for some time. He says that the foundry’s closing and the unique zoning for that area has led to some challenges and opportunities for the area.

All city residents, especially those who live in the area, are encouraged to attend.
