Protest march planned in Groveport for June 13

The city of Groveport was informed that a local pastor will hold a peaceful protest procession along Main Street on June 13 beginning at 11 a.m. The group plans to meet at the closed 5/3rd Bank in front of Kroger on Main Street. The procession will head east down Main Street and will end at the Groveport Recreation Center.

City officials said Groveport Police will be involved to manage traffic control and assure all involved remain safe.

“The mayor, myself, Police Capt. Blevins, and Sgt. Short met with Pastor Kelsey Crenshaw,” said Groveport City Administrator B.J. King. “Pastor Crenshaw, who is a Groveport resident, plans to hold a peaceful protest march on June 13. He is permitted to hold the march pursuant to exercising his First Amendment right to peaceably assemble and protest. Pastor Crenshaw does not need to get permission from the city of Groveport to have his protest procession. This is not a city sponsored event. Pastor Crenshaw advised that if there is any inclination that anything other than a peaceful protest will occur, he will shut it down. He is very sincere and adamant that this is a peaceful protest.”

  1. Do we know if any roads will be shut during this? My parents live next to the rec center and are concerned about access to their house and being able to leave during the protest.
