Columbus is Changing & Growing
Initial Focus Areas for Modernized Zoning
Data, policy and public input all show that transit corridors and commercial districts have the most potential to address our city’s housing, mobility and affordability challenges through modernized zoning. Read our new report, “Where Do We Begin?” to learn how the Zone In team identified 62 streets and districts where updated zoning will first be considered.
NEXT, we need help from residents who live and work on these corridors to determine how existing zoning in these areas should be revised.
Zone In Community Conversations
The Zone In project team will host community conversations around a number of zoning topics throughout the life of this project. These conversations will provide an opportunity to learn, discuss and ideate around many different aspects of zoning. Visit the project website for the list of topics and dates as they become available.

Only 1 Rise Up CBUS will be held within the Far East Area Commission Boundaries, at the Eastpointe Christian Church. To follow the event on Facebook... click here!
The Rise Up CBUS! series was launched in 2022. Updating the long-standing Neighborhood Pride Program, Rise Up CBUS! brought Mayor Ginther's Opportunity Rising Plan to life in nine neighborhoods by illustrating the many City and community services that are working today to advance the 21 aspirations that are part of Opportunity Rising. Working in partnership with Columbus Recreation and Parks, the series began in May and concluded in September. Over 2,000 residents are estimated to have participated and, in addition to City Departments, 115 non-profit community agencies were represented.
In 2023, Rise Up CBUS! will host or participate in 12 events from April through September. All events take place on Thursdays from 4:30 p.m - 7:30 p.m
