Downtown to Gain Three Public Restrooms

The City of Columbus, in partnership with the Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District (SID), will commission the construction and maintenance of three public restrooms downtown to foster vibrancy and promote safety and cleanliness.

Why?

To keep downtown vibrant, safe, and clean, the City is investing in three public restrooms, an amenity that will serve everyone downtown, including residents, commuters, visitors, joggers, festivalgoers, and families. Restrooms of the same variety have been deployed from Boston to San Francisco, and Columbus joins a list of nearly 100 North American cities offering these facilities to promote the safety and cleanliness of our downtown. In addition to providing comfort and convenience, these public restrooms will benefit public health by mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases.
