Downtown Columbus is Moving Forward

Downtown Columbus Strategic Plan

The 2010 Downtown Columbus Strategic Plan put renewed attention on Downtown Columbus, with an opportunity to transform not only the urban core, but the City as a whole. Building on the 2002 Strategic Business Plan for Downtown Columbus, the 2010 Plan advances the long-term framework for Downtown and identifies catalysts for continued growth. Strong public/private cooperation on project implementation and policy adoption will allow the 2010 Downtown Columbus Strategic Plan to have greater longevity and effectiveness. A successful downtown will, in turn, create a more successful region that is both nationally and globally competitive.

Scioto Peninsula Master Plan

The Downtown Strategic Plan proposed the idea for redeveloping the Scioto Peninsula area with a mixed-use continuation of Downtown. On April 3, 2012, the city of Columbus and Franklin County, as land owners on the peninsula, asked the Columbus Downtown Development Corporation to lead the process to create a strategic land use plan to determine the development potential for the Scioto Peninsula. CDDC hosted a public meeting about the Scioto Peninsula Master Plan on November 8, 2012, at COSI. The community was invited to attend to hear the framework of the land use plan, and offer comments and suggestions. The Master Plan was then presented to the public on August 13, 2013. Click here for more information and to view the materials from the public meetings.
