Exciting News

I've lived in Highland West for a year now, and I'm excited to be a part of the Highland West Civic Association.  I'll admit that the first few meetings I attended were a bit discouraging, but the Association is more organized and everybody on the board seems to be ready to start a new era of community participation.

I'm posting this as a message to all residents to get involved.  We want to unite our current residents around the goal of uplifting our neighborhood, while we preserve the diversity that makes us special. At the same time, we want to invite others to our community so they can join us.

This is an exciting time. We have this beautiful blank canvas that everybody can leave their mark on. I hope everybody takes advantage of this opportunity to be a part of building Columbus' next great neighborhood.

A Community Committed to History and Progress

What a great time today. My son Timothy Rush enjoyed the opportunity to spend the morning jumping in and helping on behalf of CleanTurn Enterprises. He, myself and my daughter had a blast discussion with loving, engaged and passionate neighbors who are committed to the history of the community and its progress! Simply a breath of fresh air during a very busy campaign season! Thank you for an awesome time and thank you for your loyal and generous investment of time, energy and resources in making the community all a community is meant to be!!!

Travel the Trail the RIGHT way

Trail visitors do you know the proper side to run, walk and bike?
Stay to the RIGHT. "Wheels yield to heels"

Many Trails are 10-12 feet wide with yellow dashed lines in the middle. Please run, walk, rollerblade, skateboard and bike on the right side and when you need to pass, do so on the LEFT side and give warning with a bell or say "passing". When passing it's OK to cross the yellow line and then return to the right side, as long as the oncoming trail lane is clear, if not yield until you can pass safely. Go with the flow!

More Here:

You can find the Camp Chase Trail in Highland West at approximately 375 North Eureka Ave between Holton Park Rec Center and Valleyview Drive.  Come join the fun!

Please....Don't Forget to RECYCLE!

Accepted items

Here's what goes in the blue cart:

Aluminum and steel cans - and lids.
Flattened cardboard and pizza boxes (free of food and grease).
Plastic bottles/jugs.
Newspaper, magazines, catalogs, junk mail, computer paper, cereal and other dry food boxes and phone books.
Glass bottles and jars.
Cartons and juice boxes.

Here's what doesn't:

No trash or yard waste.  The blue cart is for recyclables only.
No plastic bags.
No hazardous materials, such as oil, pesticides, paints, cleaners or batteries.
No syringes/needles.
No electronics or light bulbs.
No window glass, mirrors, dinnerware, ceramics or pots and pans.
No food.
No buckets or butter tubs.
No foil juice pouches.


No sorting required. Put all recyclables in the blue cart.
Lids, caps and labels can be kept on recyclable containers.
Do not place dirty recyclables, like un-rinsed jars, in the cart.
Reference the graphic on the lid of your blue cart if you are unsure whether or not an item is accepted.

Cart placement

The recycling cart should be set out for collection in the same location as trash is collected. So, if a household's trash is collected in the alley, the blue recycling cart should be placed in the same location used for collection of the green 90 or 300-gallon trash container on the designated recycling collection day. If a household's trash is collected at the curbside in front of the home, the blue recycling cart should be placed at the curbside.




There are no birthdays today

The Highland West Neighborhood Plan: Business District

After a year of large amounts of public input, this was approved in 2006.  It has since disappeared from the City's Document Library, although it continues to be referenced in City documents, so as a service to you and for your efforts back then, we are providing a copy of it here!
