Meet the City’s new Zoning Inspector

Meet the City’s new Zoning Inspector, Alex Carlson!

Carlson is currently a senior at The Ohio State University and is finishing a Bachelor of Science in City and Regional Planning. He plans to pursue graduate school upon graduation. Alex and his wife, Sam, got married this past September and are anxious to move to Powell soon. In his role as the Zoning Inspector, Carlson actively works with residents and businesses in Powell to enforce the City’s Zoning Code and supports the Development Department.

“I am excited to share in the high level of pride Powell has in being a small, local town with a strong sense of community and get to visit all of the local businesses that make Powell great,” said Carlson. “I look forward to getting to know the people of this City and am honored to serve it in the coming years.”

    Is a dog tied to a line (which stretches between a deck and swingset) considered a ‘dog run’ ? Can you tell me what is Powell’s legal definition of a ‘dog run’ ?
