About the Presentation

City of Westerville Uptown Improvement Project

Historic Uptown Westerville was built in the late 1800s, following the establishment of Westerville in 1848. Much of the original infrastructure remains intact, making the District as authentic as old-generation downtowns come. Yet Uptown is known for its new-generation dining, shopping and entertainment, featuring nearly 100 merchants and small business owners. In mid-2015, conceptual planning began for the Uptown Improvement Project, which would ultimately become a $5 million project to widen sidewalks, upgrade signals, conduct streetscape improvements and make the entire district ADA-compliant. Balancing a revitalization project in a historic district is traditionally complicated, but taking small businesses offline for construction was a chief concern. The project also had to work around a number of issues, including the expected, like old buildings with basements and construction along a state route, and the unexpected, like an internationally televised Democratic Presidential Debate followed by a global pandemic. Hear from the project team as they share lessons learned from the design, construction and outreach related to this project.
