District One

Columbus City Council Residential District One roughly consists of Sawmill Road to the west, Route 161 to the south, Cleveland Avenue to the east, and the Polaris area to the north. District One is unique in that its neighborhoods are extremely diverse in size and demographic makeup. Its poverty rate is among the lowest of the districts.

The district’s neighborhoods include Far North, Far Northwest, and Northland. One of the most notable features of this area is Polaris Fashion Place, a large indoor shopping mall that offers a wide range of shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. Additionally, the north side of Columbus is home to several parks and outdoor recreational areas, including Alum Creek State Park and Highbanks Metro Park.
