The Short North Good Neighbor Pledge Program is a collaborative, community-wide effort to foster transparent communications among all stakeholders who enjoy the Short North community. 

Businesses and Commercial Property Owners who sign the Short North Good Neighbor Pledge commit to practice community standards for private business operations that support the economic success of businesses, that foster the Short North Arts District as a vibrant, creative, and inclusive community and leading arts destination, and that prevent negative impacts to adjacent historic residential neighborhoods.

Community standards include: 

  • Noise
  • Cleanliness
  • Safety
  • Operations
  • Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access
  • Art, Culture, and Community

The Short North Alliance, as administrator of the pledge, is not an enforcement entity and will not actively monitor individual business or property owners for compliance, but will provide a communication to businesses, property owners, recognized Short North resident-community organizations, historic review commissions, and the City of changes in participation if it becomes aware of a lack of participation in the pledge, including by reviewing reports filed through the City of Columbus 311 notification system. 

Community members who believe that a business or property owner may no longer be participating in the pledge are directed to report concerns regarding participation in all the following ways: 

  • To report all issues, email the Short North Alliance at and include the date, time, and business where the concerns were observed.
  • To report noise, cleanliness, and safety issues, email the City of Columbus Department of Neighborhoods at
