The Westland Area Commissioners are encouraging residents to attend Rise Up CBUS this month.

Rise Up is a free event for residents in Columbus to learn about a wide range of resources available throughout the city and about community partners.

At a June meeting, Westland commissioner Janet Cahill said the commissioners will have a table at the event on July 13 at Columbia Heights Church to talk to residents about the need for a Westland recreation center and to provide residents with an opportunity to sign a petition about the need for recreational opportunities on the westside.

Cahill said most of the commissioners will be in attendance to answer questions and meet community members. The commissioners will also display their new branded folding table, canopy, and table cover they approved for purchase at a prior meeting at the event.

Rise Up CBUS will be held at 775 Galloway Road from 4:30 to 7:30 pm.

In related news, the developer of farmland on Galloway Road may donate land to the city of Columbus. Cahill said that she is trying to determine if some of that land could be used for a recreation center.

Cahill said there are restrictions on that land as it falls under the territory of the Big Darby Accord.

“I would like to have someone from the Darby Accord come to our meeting to see if there are any parts of the land that are useable,” Cahill said.
