Current Ongoing Projects
The Columbus Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan is a unique document serving a dual purpose. It serves as both (1) a long-term policy guide as a Columbus Comprehensive Plan element and (2) a strategic action plan for City departments. The Planning Department facilitates the regular gathering of a Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan implementation working group. This group includes the Planning Department, Parks Department, City Engineer's Office, CAMPO, Bartholomew County Healthy Communities, and a citizen representative of the original citizen-led bicycle and pedestrian committee. The group's meetings are intended to provide a forum for coordinating bicycle and pedestrian related projects and to seek opportunities for the sharing of resources and the implementation of Plan-identified projects. Meeting notes and other supporting information from this effort are included below.

State Street Corridor Plan
The City of Columbus is facilitating the development of a complete land use and transportation plan for the State Street Corridor. The Planning Department will be working with 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, this project is intended to be adopted as part of the City of Columbus Comprehensive Plan.
Throughout the course of the planning process, members of the public will have an opportunity to provide input and review drafts of the corridor plan.
