A better vision for the UMCH property

Who does City Council represent? Will resident voices be heard by City leadership?

Recent Updates:

  1. LC has received approval from MPC to demolish the 2 homes and the vacant Children’s Home buildings on the property. This work has started. It was stated at the MPC meeting that the agreement to demolish is not an endorsement of anything else LC has presented.  But to LC, now the sole owner of the property, this demolition represents another step on the way to realizing their development plan of 730 residential units. 
  2. The Vision Worthington Committee has produced a video about the visions, guiding principles and next steps toward implementation that resulted from their extensive community outreach efforts.

Take action!

A reminder of our basic vision:

  • Place the values and interests of Worthington residents at the center of UMCH development, rather than residential for-profit developers
  • Preserve the current zoning, and leave the core of the property for community-centered commons
  • Develop commercial and retail on High St. to provide substantial city revenue
  • Build appropriate residential that is harmonious with surrounding neighborhoods; not high-density apartments or condos that create congestion, crowd schools, burden city finances, and degrade our historic character
