City Council plans to demolish former Schottensteins store

Columbus, OH – Columbus City Council has authorized the Columbus Urban Growth Corporation to spend $325,000 to demolish the former Schottensteins store on Parsons Ave. and the vacant IGA grocery store nearby. The removal of the city owned buildings clears the way to begin south side revitalization efforts called for in the Parsons Avenue vision plan, adopted by the city last year. Jim Letizia reports.
