Columbus is Changing & Growing

  • New Columbus residents since 2010: 120,000

  • Projected regional population by 2050: 3 million

  • To make up for our housing shortage and keep up with growth, our region needs to double the number of new units built each year.

An updated zoning code is an important part of guiding growth in a smart and equitable way.

See the Code Proposal at the Zone In Gallery

In April, the City of Columbus will introduce a proposal to modernize the zoning on Columbus corridors.
We’ve created the Zone In Gallery – an interactive space where you can learn all about it.

If you are organizing a group visit to the Gallery

Eastland plan.jpg


Creating an inclusive and equitable new chapter for Eastland requires a bold, long-term vision. This consists of a framework that centers around people, places, and opportunity. It is critical to identify the needs, challenges, and opportunities for all the stakeholders within the Eastland community, from housing to education to employment to history and culture.

To create a community-driven vision, this planning process will engage Eastland area stakeholders who live, work, worship, play, and learn in the community. This will ensure the Eastland Community Plan will be a successful roadmap to a bright future for everyone.
