Welcome to Riverlea!

Incorporated in 1939, the Village of Riverlea is a quiet, leafy residential community of just over 600 people, situated between High Street and the Olentangy River just north of Columbus. We are a fifteen minute drive from the Ohio State University campus and a twenty minute drive from downtown Columbus. It’s a short walk to the shops, restaurants, and village green of downtown Worthington, and a short ride to the scenic Olentangy bike trail. Our children attend Evening Street Elementary School, Kilbourne Middle School, and Thomas Worthington High School in the Worthington school district. All three schools are located within a mile of the Village.


Resident updates

Village Council welcomes two new members

Two vacant seats on Riverlea Council were filled by appointment at the Council meeting on January 16.  Riverlea residents Jeff Amick and Suzanne Surface are now Riverlea Council members and bring the body back to a full six member capacity.  Thank you for your willingness to serve!

The Village Council is Riverlea’s legislative body. It has six members and votes on ordinances, resolutions and financial matters affecting the Village. It’s also responsible for appointing and overseeing the work of other Village officials, including the Planning Commissioner, the Street Commissioner, and the Web Manager. The Council meets on the third Monday of each month except for January and February, when meetings fall on the Tuesday after the third Monday. Meetings normally begin at 7:00 pm, but recently have begun at 6:30 pm because TWHS is under construction and the Old Worthington Library closes at 9:00. Meetings usually last 1-2 hours, sometimes a little less and occasionally more.
