A Columbus area folk artist whose work focused on her childhood neighborhood has died.

Franklin County Commissioners this week voted to back 12 million dollars in bonds for the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority, to fund the second phase of redevelopment of the former Poindexter Village site on the Near East Side.

A 30 million dollar federal grant will be used to help redevelop the former Poindexter Village apartment complex on the East side into a mixed-income housing development.

The controversial demolition of the Poindexter Village housing complex is underway.

The Columbus Board of Zoning Adjustment has approved plans to raze at least part of the Poindexter Village housing complex on the East side.

Plans are in the works to preserve part of the Poindexter Village housing complex.
