Italian Village

Columbus City Council last night voted to extend a moratorium on issuing any new parking permits in the Short North and Italian Village until December 31st.

Authorities have identified the homeless man killed in an explosion at a camp in Italian Village last week.

Columbus police say a homeless person burned to death last night after an explosion inside a tent at a homeless camp near Lincoln and Hamlet Streets in Italian Village.

Some Italian Village residents are fighting plans to build a high-rise apartment building along Pearl Alley a block off of High Street. 

Columbus City Council last night formally objected to state renewal of the liquor licenses of 14 local bars and carryouts that officials say drain public safety resources and harm neighborhoods.

Expanding some Short North and Italian Village parking permit areas and sharing parking fees are among the recommendations a working group has sent to Columbus City Council for approval.

There appears to be no end in sight to the parking shortage in Italian Village.
