Italian Village Park Pavilion Update

We are heading into a new phase for the Italian Village Park Pavilion. The City of Columbus has entered into a contract with the Neighborhood Design Center to conduct a competition to determine the design for the pavilion. The process is scheduled to take six months and include a call for architects to select three architects who will submit designs for the pavilion. There will be plenty of community involvement during the process. Italian Villagers will be on the committee that chooses the architects and the design. Community forums to meet the architects and to view designs are part of the process as well.
