Current Ongoing Projects
The City of Columbus is facilitating the development of a complete land use and transportation plan for the State Street Corridor. The Planning Department has partnered with a team of consultants from The Lakota Group to (1) formulate recommendations for street improvements that will create a pedestrian, bicyclist, and transit-friendly transportation corridor, (2) develop long-term land use recommendations, (3) identify redevelopment opportunities, and (4) develop recommendations for streetscape and site design improvements. Upon completion, the Corridor Plan is intended to be adopted as part of the City of Columbus Comprehensive Plan.
Visit the State Street Corridor Plan project website for steering committee membership, meeting minutes, and draft documents.

The City of Columbus has initiated a study of the local housing market focusing on (1) the comparison of the supply and demand for housing for the complete range of income groups and (2) the identification of a strategy to provide additional housing options for those in need. The housing study project is under the management of the Columbus Community Development Department, with the Planning Department facilitating the work of a market-rate housing sub-committee (other aspects of the project focus on affordable housing for low to moderate income groups). The City has hired Strategic Development Group (SDG), based in Bloomington, Indiana, as the consutlant for the project.
