The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight in Washington, D.C., which tracked home-appreciation values in 275 cities across the U.S., reported that Columbus homes decreased 3.55 percent in value from the first to the second quarter of the year.


Several architects, engineers and consultants met in Columbus for a charrette, an intense effort by architects to solve a problem, to consider the creation of a model interstate entrance to the city, along State Road 46 from County Road 350W to the east end of the proposed First Street bridge.


Crews began preparing the covered bridge over Clifty Creek on Old Airport Road south of Columbus for its cross-county trek to a new home in Mill Race Park.
