District Seven

Columbus City Council Residential District Seven includes the city’s central neighborhoods and a smattering of incorporated areas down to Interstate 270 to the south. The district is notable because its racial diversity most closely matches that of the city at large when compared to other districts. Its median income is also nearly identical to that of the city at large.

District Seven boasts a wide variety of neighborhoods, including Downtown, Short North, Near East Side, Franklinton, Fifth by Northwest, Milo-Grogan, German Village, Italian Village, Fort Hayes, Near East, and the Brewery District. The district is home to the Statehouse, Columbus Museum of Art, COSI, Franklin Park Conservatory, Ohio State Fairgrounds, and the Scioto Audubon.
