With just one issue before Upper Arlington voters on May 4, we want to be sure residents have had plenty of opportunity to learn about the issue before them before casting their vote. All UA households are scheduled to receive a brochure the week of March 22 that provides a high-level overview of the question before voters and details of upcoming community meetings and how to learn more in the countdown to the election.

Ballot Issue Webpage
The City has developed a webpage with details about the proposed community center issue, including a preview of the ballot language, conceptual renderings, insight on how the community center would be part of the Kingsdale Mixed-Use Project, plans for the office space, answers to frequently asked questions and more. A virtual tour of the proposed facility can be viewed here too.
If you are interested in digging further into the history leading up to this ballot issue, the Community Center Feasibility Task Force (CCFTF) website includes the full report, meeting videos and all associated documents developed over the course of their 18-month study process.
If you have questions, or you are part of a group that would be interested in a presentation on this issue, we want to hear from you. Contact us today!
