Now that is has become fall and the swimming pools are closed, everyone will be spending more time inside of their homes. This is a good time to request your free radon kit from the Franklin County Public Health Department. Simply visit www.myfcph.org and click on Radon in the Popular Links area to complete the request form or call the Franklin County Public Health at (614) 525-3859.
Your kit will be mailed to you directly from the Air Check Laboratory. Follow the testing directions in the package that accompany the kit. When you've finished testing, place the kit in the pre-paid mailer and send it to the manufacturer for analysis. There is no cost to you for the analysis. You will receive your results in the mail.
If you have any questions about how to conduct the test, or about your results, contact Mike Lopinsky at Franklin County Public Health at (614) 525-3859 or via email at email@example.com.

In 2011, the Alum Creek Corridor Committe (ACCC) was created with a mission to create an accessible, interactive, and protected Alum Creek corridor along the length of Bexley's creekside in collaboration with community stakeholders and other jurisdictions. One of the initial goals that came out of the ACCC was the creation of a park along Alum Creek from Main Street to Livingston.
One of the initial steps to developing a park along the creek was to create a park plan. Thanks to a grant from the Bexley Community Foundation as well as a grant from the Jeffrey Foundation, funds have been secured for the creation of the park plan.
This is where you, the Bexley Resident, comes in. We are seeking input from the residents to drive the development of this park plan. What do you want in a park along Alum Creek? What type of amenities, what access, what programming, etc. In an effort to gather as much feedback from the community as possible, we have developed a survey. Please check out the survey through the link below. Also, please pass this along to your neighbors and friends, as community input is key to the success of this project.
Additionally, we have constructed an idea board that is located at the Farmers Market on the corner of Main Street and Parkview. We encourage you to write your thoughts and ideas about what you would like to see in a park along Alum Creek onto the board.
Once we have collected feedback through the survey and idea board, we will then schedule a community meeting in which we will encourage residents to provide feedback on draft park plans.
Please feel free to contact the Bexley Recreation and Parks Department with any questions. Please spread the word as, again, we need community input to develop a park that meets the needs of our community.
