A grand opening for the new Commons is slated for June.

The Commons in Columbus is nearing completion.  Manager Lisa Westenberger says they’ve worked hard to incorporate the public’s favorite items from the old Commons into the new building.

“Chaos is definitely the focal point that brings it all- brings the old into the new space where people can just come in and just sit down talk to their neighbors, talk to other people in the community,” said Westenberger.   “We will have lounge chairs upstairs where people can just come in and hang out.”

In addition to Chaos, the new Commons incorporates other features from the old building including the stage area and the playground.  Westenberger says the facility will be a big draw for traveling families.  Officials hope to have the playground open by the middle of May and a grand opening celebration is slated for June.
