Map of Area Commission Boundaries

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. We believe in the philosophy of the MAC, having the POWER OF MANY VOICES, which fights for the core values of our community collectively.
