    Insight

    We want to bring more restaurants/entertainment and increase the things to do here on weekends/ keep dollars in the community, but in order to make the location attractive to restaurants, we will need traffic, which comes from more density of residents and businesses.

    Background

    • Some participants thus far have described Worthington as sleeping Monday-Thursday.
    • Others have said we have too many pizza shops, banks and salons.
    • Surveyed residents have said that are leaving to take their visitors to Downtown Columbus, the Short North and Dublin for more variety.
    • A former restaurant owner involved in the Business Focus Group stated that Worthington needs more body heat and increased density to generate more restaurants/retail.

    Key Questions:

    • Why do you think the location is NOT attractive to restaurants today?
    • What kinds of incentives can we offer to make it more attractive to these businesses?
    • What kinds of restaurants/entertainment match Worthington's "Style" or what kinds of restaurants/entertainment do you seek?
    • Would you be willing to increase density in residential and office development if it could bring additional restaurants and retail to the City?
