Clintonville

Columbus City, Franklin County, OH

Clintonville’s [†] urban form is typical of the “streetcar suburb” development pattern, with a relatively dense residential pattern in its southern portions and more suburban densities to the north. Almost all of Clintonville’s neighborhoods include a traditional street grid pattern, with alleys serving many areas, particularly in the southern part of the area. The street grid pattern is broken by each of the planning area’s ravines, which forced the development of a road network to mirror the land contours.

As indicated, commercial uses exist in a traditional pattern, primarily along High Street and Indianola Avenue. The housing pattern for Clintonville largely consists of single family residential units. Apartment buildings are generally located adjacent to High Street. The greatest concentration of multifamily uses is located just south of the Worthington City limits on the west side of High Street and on the west side of High Street at Kelso Road in the south portion of the planning area. Doubles and smaller four-unit apartment buildings are located throughout the portions of the planning area south of North Broadway Street. Figure 5 illustrates the range of residential densities in the planning area.

Clintonville is host to examples of almost all the major American housing styles. The area has a particularly large concentration of American Four Squares, Colonial Revivals, Cape Cods, and bungalows. In addition, the area includes ranches, Georgian, Victorian, modern, French Eclectic, and many other housing types. The diversity of housing lends Clintonville a unique, eclectic neighborhood feel.

The primary road corridors include North High Street, Indianola Avenue, North Broadway Street, Cooke Road, Henderson Road, Weber Road, and Morse Road. The Olentangy River creates a scenic and recreation corridor for Clintonville on its western edge. Overall notable community gateway demarcation is lacking in Clintonville, including at all neighborhood boundaries, at areas near the Olentangy River, and at the railroad passes. Clintonville includes both road corridors and a major river corridor.
