About Us

If you love Downtown Columbus, you are in the right place!

Welcome to the Downtown Residents’ Association of Columbus. Or as we like to call ourselves: “DRAC.” Sounds like a fictional vampire. Looks like an energetic community of downtown dwellers.

 

Our Mission

We exist to ensure a vibrant downtown neighborhood by connecting our members to the local community.

DRAC is a civic association comprised of downtown residents, urban partners and other Columbus residents who have an interest in the ongoing development of our community.

Simply put, we offer a space to get to know your neighbors better whether you live, work or play in the downtown area.

 

Our History

DRAC grew out of a Leadership Columbus project from the class of 2003. The organization’s debut took place on July 21, 2003 at the CityHop Tour of Downtown Homes.
