Last Envision Columbus input session set for July 9th

The final public input meeting for the Envision Columbus downtown plan is coming up on July 9th.

The city of Columbus and Heritage Fund: The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County are behind the updated downtown plan. The area under consideration is 938 acres stretching from south of the downtown to Donner Park and from Mill Race park to California Street.

The goal is to update the downtown strategic development plan, which was last updated in 2005.

Jamie Brinegar, finance director for the city, says that the city is looking for your thoughts on what should happen in the area.

Brinegar says that projects recommended by the public’s preferences could be considered for funding by the city.

This last public input session will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on July 9th at Columbus City Hall. You can get more information or take an online survey at the city’s website at
