 2020 Highlights

See the Facebook link below to see photos & details on our hometown's plans to revitalize & awards.

1.  $250 million redevelopment on northeast corner of Broad Street & Hamilton Road.  In 2020, the City solidified its partnership with Miami-based developer N.R. Investments to redevelop the 50-acres where Woodcliff used to be located.  It will boast new residential options, restaurants & retail shops, along with new office space.  

2.  Cerelia Bakery announced their move to Whitehall in early 2020 and is now well underway on their new state-of-the-art 160,000 square foot baking facility in the Airport South Commerce & Tech Park. Among other baked goods (think cinnamon rolls, pie dough, etc.), this new facility will produce 5,000 tons of ready-to-eat cookie dough annually.

3.  Whitehall wins 2 "Award of Excellence" from Ohio Parks & Recreation Association 

  • Whitehall Teen Employment Outreach Project.  WYAA helped this project by inviting this organization to attend & recruit students from our January 2020 Career Fair.  They recruited lots of Ram students to work at Gahanna & Whitehall parks during the 2020 summer.  
  • Whitehall Community Park won the Infrastructure Improvement Project for the beautifully re-meadowed 80-acre Whitehall Community Park & re-naturalized segment of Big Walnut Creek on the old North American Park site.  (Remember sledding down that hill?).  They  where they recently added a canoe, kayak launch.

3.  New Garbage & Recycling Cart Program starts on January 2021.  The free carts were made possible from a $200,000 grant from SWACO & The Recylcing Project through the Local Waste Services.  https://www.whitehallcartrollout.com/fbclid=IwAR2Ixn_90JDJfVAwMbKo_ALjGP11Z2ie4D_vIiOtfFOMadVkOSJxCRSL51c
