View Infill Site Profiles in a larger map.


The City of Columbus Comprehensive Plan supports the development of “infill” sites as an alternative to the continued outward expansion of the City.   This infill development assists with community goals for the protection of farmland, the efficient use of infrastructure investments, the wise use of tax-payer dollars, orderly long-term community growth, and quality neighborhoods (Goals A-4, D-1, D-3).

The potential infill development sites profiled here have been identified by the Planning Department as meeting each of the following criteria: (1) the property is undeveloped, vacant, or clearly underused, (2)  the property is either within the City limits or encompassed by the City, (3) the property is large enough to support a commercial use or development or multiple dwelling units, and (4) the property's most likely future use is commercial or residential.  Information on industrial sites is available through the Columbus Economic Development Board (

This inventory was developed to assist in the consistent identification of these infill sites in the community in response to on-going inquiries from developers and a diversity of community groups.  The presence of any property profile should not be interpreted as indicating that property is owned or controlled by the City, that it is for sale, that any specific development approvals have been granted, or that it is specifically eligible for any development incentives from the City of Columbus.

Property owners, realtors, or others seeking to have specific properties added to or removed from this inventory should feel free to contact the Planning Department.  Properties that meet the criteria listed above will be added.  Properties will be removed from the inventory upon request of the property owner and/or upon determination by the Planning Department that the inventory criteria are no longer met.

Anyone seeking additional information about the zoning regulations, comprehensive plan policies, or other characteristics or regulations affecting the development of these properties should also contact the Planning Department.
