Take A Look At...

East-West Corridor

Columbus Eastsiders, we really need your input. Please take the survey. The decision is ours to make. Choose East Main St or East Broad St. It will be one or the other!

With nearly three million residents expected in our region by 2050, now is the time to reimagine how we can move faster, safer and smarter from east to west. The East-West corridor stretches along W. Broad St. from Galloway Rd. to Downtown, and along E. Broad St./E. Main St. from Downtown to the Franklin County line to the east.

Climate Action - Resident Engagement

The City of Columbus is drafting a Climate Action Plan to serve as a roadmap to community-wide carbon neutrality.

They want your input!

Community feedback is essential to help define how they will reach their goal. They want to center and invest in our historically disenfranchised communities and envision an inclusive, prosperous, sustainable future together.

Zoning Code Update

Columbus is growing, bringing opportunities and challenges. Where will people live and work? How will they get around? What will our neighborhoods look like? How can we foster opportunity?

Columbus, like most communities, uses zoning to regulate property use, building size and placement, setbacks, and open space on any given parcel. The regulations for a particular property are determined by a combination of the zoning map and the corresponding standards in the zoning code.

The city is now moving forward to update the zoning code.  Project Goal: An updated zoning code aligned with City priorities for growth management, equity, affordable housing, job creation, neighborhood vitality, sustainability, and transportation.
