    Lots of talk about walkability and bike ability in the downtown Worthington area. but what about Worthington west of the river?  we can walk or bike the bike path to downtown Worthington but the Linworth corridor is not connected.  it would be so nice for my daughter to walk or bike to Linworth Alternative School. or walk or bike to the new commerce center at 161 and Linworth. Could we get a cross walk across Linworth Road?  it would be so nice if our portion of Worthington was better connected?  the emphasis of amenities is clustered around Olde Worthington.

  • Diversity in Worthington

    We know that 93% of Worthington is white.  We also know that adjacent communities like Dublin, Powell and Westerville are, on average, about 81% white.  We also know that Franklin County is about 67% white. Are we okay with having such a small minority population in Worthington? Why do we?  Our school district is relativity diverse with the Thomas Worthington High School's student body being about 64% White, 12% Black, 11% Hispanic, 7% blended and 6% Asian. Most of these students and their families do not live in the city limits. What are the challenges people of color see with living here? What can we do to make Worthington a more livable community for diverse famlies?

  • The need for Critical Mass

    We want Worthington to thrive. We need attractions that draw people from other communities to visit and spend money in Worthington. We want Worthington to have a reputation of being "Open for Business". We need to send the message "Worthington is going to make to Mae it easy for you to relocate and do business here."

    Worthington has great schools. Our schools are supported by strong property values, both residential and commercial. Moving forward we need more the right kind of office space to attract businesses with high paying jobs.

    Worthington is a place where people want to live, work and be entertained. An interdependent relationship exists between Businesses who want a loyal and talented Labor Pool; the Labor Pool who want to live in a thriving community with lots of amenities; and Commercial entities that provide those amenities but require lots of customers for survival. This raises the issue of Critical Mass or Density - a requirement to support the attractions and amenities that we all want.

    People have historically been drawn to Worthington because of the schools and sense of community here.The Schools are dependent on property values. If commercial property values fall, the schools suffer and we've lost one of the communities main assets.
