March Luncheon: Upper Arlington
Time & Location
About the Event
CREW Columbus is pleased to welcome Steve Schoney of Upper Arlington to our March luncheon. Steve recently joined the City of Upper Arlington as the City Manager after serving as the Director of Development for the City of Columbus. Steve will talk about trends in the Columbus regional real estate market and how those are impacting communities like Upper Arlington and the region as a whole.
A 13-year resident of Upper Arlington, Steve previously served as the Director of the City of Columbus’ Department of Development since the summer of 2013. During his tenure, the department implemented new planning principles that provide a consistent framework throughout the city, in collaboration with neighborhood leaders. He has spearheaded numerous economic development efforts that resulted in a net gain of more than one million square feet of Class A office space in Columbus. He led Columbus’ participation in the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission’s (MORPC) Corridor Concepts project, collaborating with eight regional municipalities around a shared vision of mobility. Steve also oversaw the creation of a proactive code enforcement system for the department, as well as a restructuring of various housing incentive programs to encourage mixed-income neighborhoods.
