Mid-East Area Commission

MAC IN THE NEWS

In March 2020 the City of Columbus launched a new public safety effort to not just reduce traffic fatalities but to completely eliminate them. On March 2, 2021 Mayor Ginther announced the continuation of this initiative during a press conference held at the intersection of James Road and Livingston Avenue. Mayor Ginther, Mayor Kessler (City of Bexley), city department directors, and MAC Commissioner Greg Lee (Berwick Civic Association) spoke.

This area commission meets at
Christ United Methodist Church
1480 Zettler Rd.

Key Details

The Mideast Area Commission or MAC is the result of its predecessor the Mideast Area Community Collaborative or MACC. The MACC was established with only 8 neighborhood civics and block watches in 2004. The vision then was for neighborhoods with similar concerns, to come together to work on solutions for the common good.

Through this process our core values were and are that:

  • Each neighborhood would continue to sit at the table. Equal representation for all!
  • Each neighborhood will make its own decisions concerning internal matters.
  • Support will be offered when requested. This could be in form of support letters, attendance at hearings and calling mass meetings to raise awareness and show strength in numbers for that particular issue or concern.

The Mideast Area Commission was sworn in by
Columbus City Council on July 29, 2019.


We thrive on our diversity. We are currently 16 neighborhoods of different income and educational levels, housing stock, racial, religious, cultural and age level differences; who come together to maintain and improve the Mideast side (which includes the eastside, southeast, northeast, and far eastside) of Columbus, Ohio.
We believe in the philosophy of the MAC, having the POWER OF MANY VOICES, which fights for the core values of our community collectively.

HAVE A NICE DAY and BE SAFE!

I have been a member of the Mideast Area Commission (MAC) since 2012 as the Treasurer, originally called MidEast Area Community Collaborative (MACC).

I have lived in the Easthaven community for 33 years. Became the Easthaven Block Watch Chair in 2010 and later became the Easthaven Civic Association Chair in 2012. Easthaven Civic was started in 2010 by my neighbor Kevin, after the murder of my only/oldest son Anthony Ray "Fatboi" Sowers II on August 16, 2009, in Easthaven.

On the Unity House Board of Directors as the Secretary, a non-profit sober living home for man recovering from substance abuse, Executive Director Lamont Sapp, this home if located in Easthaven on Bulford Square. Former President of Think Make Live Youth; Community Advocate on non-violence; Care Ambassador for the Columbus Care Coalition; and helped organized several other non-profit organizations in the City of Columbus.

Retired from Nationwide Insurance as an Underwriter Specialist in 2007. Graduated from Mifflin High School and Fort Hayes Career Center in 1984. My daughter blessed me with five grandchildren, enjoy camping, fishing, the arts/music and blessing others.

WALK IN LOVE and BE BLESSED!
