As an upscale bedroom community for Columbus, lying within its statistical metropolitan area, most residents of Powell work in Columbus or one of its suburbs. Powell is noted for a historic central business district, which features a number of antique shops and similar enterprises. Powell contains mostly upscale and luxury neighborhoods, including The Retreat, The Chase, Loch Lomand, Chambers Glen, Ashmoore, Canterbury Estates, Golf Village, The Lakes of Silverleaf, Woods on Seldom Seen and Sherbourne Mews. Homes in Powell range from $75,000 to nearly $9,000,000.
Powell is home to typical midwestern restaurants and supermarkets, but due to the wishes of the residents, past and present, does not host any major industrial, financial, or technological businesses. This is apparent through the infamous “Wal-Mart dispute,” during which a group of citizens formed the Community Oversight Foundation to fight against Wal-Mart on the grounds that Wal-Mart would be detrimental to the preservation of the historic nature of Powell and would harm the current property values. However, in adjoining Liberty Township, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and its water park Zoombezi Bay, O’Shaughnessy Dam, and the historic Olentangy Indian Caverns, offer residents and visitors alike, entertainment and recreational options.
