Get Involved - Connect Columbia Update

We need your help! 

The implementation section of Connect Columbia emphasizes that all updates to the plan should involve robust citizen participation. The document directs the Planning Commission and professional staff to seek specific input from various groups, including property owners, neighborhood groups, civic leaders, developers, business owners, and other citizens and individuals who express an interest in the long-term growth and development of the city. 

The success of the plan depends on you!

The Comprehensive Plan reflects the community's vision for the future. Unlike the strategic plan, which establishes City Council's priorities for the city as an institution, Connect Columbia is an expression of the community's policy preferences related to growth and development. The quality of the plan depends on individuals and groups expressing their preferences related to the character of the city over the next five to twenty-five years.
