Open House Event

Early spring was definitely an eventful and emotional time period for the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging (COAAA) as it said goodbye after 23 years to its old location at 174  E. Long Street in downtown Columbus and said hello to its new building on South High Street.  COAAA moved to its new location at 3776 S. High St. in Columbus on April 1, 2016.  About two months later, COAAA hosted an open house to the public on Thursday, May 26, 2016.  The new building is the former corporate headquarters of Bob Evans, which has since moved to its current location in New Albany.  

Cindy FarsonCOAAA staff provided guided tours of the first floor.  Attendees were treated to food and drinks in the new education room which can hold up to 200 people.  The catering was provided by a generous donation from Bob Evans.  Cindy Farson, COAAA Director, welcomed and thanked everyone for attending and spoke briefly about the agency and the move to the new building.  Columbus City Councilwoman Jaiza Page also welcomed the community at the event.

The new building is about 80,000 square feet which is 30,000 square feet larger than its previous location.  COAAA moving to the larger space has given the agency the opportunity to better accommodate the growing number of consumers accessing state and local community based services.  The new building is accessible to the bus line, has easy access to I-270 and is only 10 minutes south of downtown Columbus.
