---------- Forwarded message ----------

The Columbus Planning Division is working with the University Area Commission and other stakeholders on the development of a University District Plan.   A public meeting on a complete draft of the plan will be held on Tuesday, September 23rd from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.  We hope that you will be able to attend.  


There will be a brief presentation at 6 pm and then meeting attendees will be directed to informational boards that will explain key highlights of the draft plan.  Interested parties may come during any portion of the time period to review the information at their own pace.  Staff will be present to answer questions and discuss.   It is the intention of the Planning Division to initiate the plan adoption process later this fall/winter.  This will include the consideration of the draft plan by the University Area Review Board, University Area Commission, Columbus Development Commission, and ultimately City Council.  Please check the webpage for updates.
