The goal of the Riverfront District is to enhance Columbus’ regional appeal by directing appropriate development towards downtown. A Riverfront District is a section within a community which allows different restaurants and businesses to maximize the use of the riverfront and its natural resources.  The Riverfront District currently offers 15 liquor licenses to various restaurants and bars who wish to establish a business in the Riverfront District.  This number was increased by the Redevelopment Commission through Resolution 30-2016 on October 18, 2016.
