The Drexel Welcomes Jeremy Henthorn as Director



Friends of the Drexel announced that Jeremy Henthorn has been selected as the Drexel's new executive director. Currently executive director of the Columbus International Film and Animation Festival at the Columbus College of Art and Design and a resident of Bexley, Henthorn holds a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. He will begin his new role with the Drexel on Monday, July 16, 2018.


"From the time I was a teenager, the Drexel has defined the cinematic experience for me,” stated Henthorn. “As a film festival programmer, I have screened dozens of films at the Drexel over the past several years, and witnessed first-hand its value to the audience, as well as to visiting filmmakers. From its gorgeous interior to its carefully curated programs, the Drexel is Columbus’ house of cinema, and I am excited for the opportunity to grow and share that experience with everyone.”

We're looking forward to the Drexel's newest addition. Congratulations, Jeremy!

City of Bexley Statement on Bird Motorized Scooters

Earlier today (Wednesday, July 11, 2018), the City of Bexley discovered that several “Bird” electric motorized scooters had been pre-positioned at locations along Main Street in Bexley. The placement of the scooters on City property was done without prior communication from the Bird company or its representatives.

As we currently interpret the Ohio Revised Code, a change in Ohio law would be required for Bird to legally operate in Bexley, or any Ohio city.  It is the City of Bexley's understanding that both Ohio and Bexley law prohibits the use of motorized scooters on the roadway or sidewalk (Ohio Revised Code 4501, 4511.214 and Bexley Codified Ordinance 474.12).  Additionally, concerns regarding the placement and staging of vehicles in City right-of-way would require any user to obtain permission from the City prior to establishing a private vehicle rental operation that requires the use of City property.  The City of Bexley has contacted the Bird company and made them aware of our interpretation that their current business model is not compatible with Ohio law.  

As a City and a community, Bexley is open to new technology, supportive of alternative and especially clean forms of transportation, and excited to see innovative business models emerging that provide value to our community.  We would be happy to work with any private transportation companies to see how we can legally and responsibly provide new and exciting opportunities for our residents.
