The first of 10 public meetings to discuss Columbia Compass, the city’s 10-year update to its comprehensive plan, will be held Tuesday.
The 12- to 18-month process is designed to create a blueprint for the city’s citizens and policymakers, according to a news release. Input is sought to identify programs, policies and infrastructure investments vital to the city’s future.
Public meetings will include a brief presentation followed by interactive sessions. The objective is to produce a vision and document which will guide Columbia City Council toward Envision 2036, a celebration of Columbia’s 250th year. Research and analysis will include subjects such as natural resources, land use, transportation, housing, cultural resources and economic development.
