Sense of community – that's what you will find in Powell but that’s not all.

We embrace our humble roots and take pride in maintaining a vibrant downtown, safe neighborhoods and an active and engaged citizenry. Powell has paired a small-town, family-friendly atmosphere with all of the modern-day conveniences and amenities of a growing community.

Powell is a community that is protected by an accredited police department and home to the highly-rated Olentangy Local School District. The City offers more than 270 parks and recreation camps and programs, providing a place for every family to play, learn, create and imagine. On a warm day, residents can hop on a bike and ride along more than 13 miles of trails, ending up in historic downtown Powell or at one of the municipal parks. They can bond with their children over the toe-tapping music of a Lolli-Pops! Children’s Concert or put a blanket in their usual spot and watch the colorful fireworks display that concludes the annual Powell Festival.

Proposed Charter Amendment to appear on the November ballot
In July 2014, petitioners filed a proposed amendment to the City’s Charter to substitute the 1995 Comprehensive Plan with a new comprehensive plan for zoning and development in the City. The amendment calls for City Council to organize a new Comprehensive Plan Commission that would draft a preliminary Comprehensive Plan that would be comprised of specific homeowner association leaders.

The City's annual Veterans Day program is slated for 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 11 at the Greater Powell Veterans Memorial in Village Green Park, 47 Hall Street. Honor and remember veterans, past and present, and thank them for their service to our country.
