Questions to Address

Housing (Aisha A)

· What is the age and condition of housing in the neighborhoods you’re surveying?Are houses and apartment buildings kept up, or are they run-down and in need of repair? Are yards neat or overgrown?

Most of the houses in the area were built in the late 1800s so these homes are not very modern but are not in terrible condition. The overall condition of houses and apartments in the area are different to each neighborhood. One area is kind of run down and the yards seem slightly overgrown. The other neighborhood in the area looks to be kept up with the yards being neat. Overall, the houses all have the similar design but are very diverse in the condition of the houses.

Other buildings (Aisha A)

· Are the buildings mostly or fully occupied? Do public and commercial buildings seem accessible to people with disabilities – ramped, street level entries, etc.?

Most of the buildings in the area are occupied with some housing that is for sale. Public and commercial buildings are in good condition allowing open access to the public. The buildings have a street level entrance with some buildings having ramps for those with disabilities. Although not every building is accessible to people with disabilities, the park does have a ramp accessible to those with disabilities.

Public spaces (Aisha A)

· Are there public spaces where people can gather? Are they well kept up?

Yes, there is a park in the neighborhood that is pretty well kept. The overall population can use this area for activities as it is open to the public. When surveying the area the diverse population was seen gathering at the park to walk their pets, participating in activities, and exercising. There is even a pond area that is the highlight of the park’s attractive scenery.

· Do they have seating areas, trees and plants, attractive design, cafes or food vendors, or other features meant to encourage people to use the space? Who uses these spaces? Is there diversity?

The area has several areas of seating for people to rest. The area has an attractive design with natural scenery such as trees and plants that seem to be well cared for. There are also several areas for the population to get food as well as cafe areas near the park. For example there is Union Cafe, Insomnia Cookies, Shake Shack, and several other restaurants and cafes in the area.

Higher education (Aisha A)

· Are there two- and four-year colleges and/or universities in the community? Where are they located? Do they seem open to the community, or do they seem self-contained and isolated?

The area has both a two and four year colleges as well as a University in the community. The four year college in the area is Columbus State Community College. This college is 1.5 miles away from the park and is open to the community. This college was built for community education and does not have any limits on who can attend. The University in the area is Franklin University which is known to be quite a prestigious school and is 1.7 miles from the park. This university does seem more isolated and not as open to the community as they have more requirements for those who can attend.

Parks (Aicha F)

· Are parks used by a variety of people? People of all races, ethnic, and religious backgrounds, the old, young, and the middle along with their furry friends make use of the park.

Are they well kept up
? The park is well maintained, there were no trash on the ground, trash cans are available and in site. Clean enough for park goers to lay on the grass, have their picnics on the tables, sit and enjoy the beauty of nature at its best. Except that we did come across an aftermath of a large tree branch that had fallen during the heavy and windy rain days prior.

· Are there sports facilities – basketball courts, soccer pitches, baseball fields, cricket pitches, etc.? There are some sports facilities: basketball court, and tennis court are the only two sports facilities present.

· Are they used at night? The park’s hours are from 7am to 11pm. The non-sports are accessible during the nighttime being that the park does not have a gate to clock the entire ground. The sports court or yards are locked at 11pm.

Public transportation (Aicha F.)

· Is there a functioning public transportation system? The COTA bus, and electronic scooters, are the public transportation vesicle available to the community.

· Is it well used? By whom? They are used by those who do not have their own personal rides/ car, or are able to afford taxis, Lyft and/ or Uber or those who do not want to drive their motor vehicle.

· Does it allow relatively easy access to all parts of the community? The E-scooters can be taken from any point in site if available, to the doorstep of the next destination. Riders drop them off however and wherever they want. Whereas the COTA bus has stop stations and riders would walk from the bus stop to their final destination.

· How easy is it to navigate and use? The E-scooters are very easy to use for those who know how to stand for long and maintain their balance on a moving scooter. However, a credit or debit card is required for the use of the scooters. The COTA bus on the other hand can either be ridden using a monthly bus pass or pay per ride with cash.

· How much does it cost? The E-bikes cost $2.25 to unlock and an additional $0.15 per minute. The COTA bus costs $2/ ride or a monthly unlimited charge of $62. Are its vehicles energy-efficient? Both COTA buses and E-bikes are energy efficient/ environmentally friendly.

Traffic (Aicha F)

· How heavy is traffic in the community? Traffic is not so heavy in the area being that it is primarily a residential area.

· Is it mostly commercial and industrial – vans, trucks, etc. – or mostly private cars? This area consists of primarily personal or privately owned transportations and bikes. With the area being primarily residential and the fact that we did not observe any commercial vehicles, I would assume that commercial transports are very limited in the area if any does drive through.

· Is there ever gridlock? There are no gridlocks in the area. I suppose this is because the speed limits are well respected with little to no accidents which would not require the need for a gridlock to be installed.

· Is there much bicycle traffic? There are lots of bike riders in the area: person bikes and the city E-bikes. Are there bike lanes? There is not a designated bike lane for bikers only. Rather, they share the same lane as motor vehicles. Are there bike racks in many places? The E-bikes can be parked practically anywhere. As for those with personal bikes, I did not observe any bike racks in the park, but there are several throughout the neighborhood.

There are public schools and academies including Columbus community college within close driving distances from the park. The Hubbard Elementary School is the nearest, only a couple of blocks away.
