Central Ohio is young, diverse, and growing. Today, with a population of over 2 million, more people live in the 12-county region of Central Ohio than in the entire state of West Virginia. Cultural diversity ranges from Amish rural to international cosmopolitan, and the economy encompasses everything from world-class horse breeding to repair of missile guidance systems.

The metrics of Central Ohio illustrate trends in population growth, economic strength, and patterns of development. Predictions include more—and more diverse—people in Central Ohio by 2050. To remain competitive, the region must plan to meet the needs of this growing and changing population. Forty years ago, Dublin, Ohio, had fewer than 700 people and Delaware County had a population of 45,000—approximately the same size of Dublin today.2 The Interstate-270 outer belt was under construction, and State Route 315 was not yet completed as a freeway between downtown and the northern suburbs. Rickenbacker was an active Air Force base, American Honda Motor Co. Inc. was 15 years from locating in Marysville, and prisoners lived in the Ohio Penitentiary near where the Nationwide Arena now sits. Forty years from now, as we look back on the Central Ohio of 2012, undoubtedly we will be amazed at how much has changed.

Over the past 40 years, the population of Central Ohio has grown by 707,000 people, adding 235,900 between 2000 and 2010 alone. If the region grows at even half the rate of the past ten years, 604,000 will be added to the area by 2050. Absorbing a population that equates to the entire city of Boston will take some planning.

In furtherance of its mission to promote the responsible use of land, ULI Columbus, in partnership with the City of Columbus, Franklin County, the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission and The Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture, Department of City and Regional Planning, has developed a strategic vision that explores where and how we will Live, Work and Play in Central Ohio in the year 2050. This strategic vision is focused around eight themes: Metro Metrics , The City Wild Water, Power, Light , Getting Around,  Whole Buildings ,  Full Spectrum Housing,  Plan it. Build It and Click, Learn, Go, Get.

On August 12th, ULI Columbus hosted the “Metro Metrics: Urban Competitiveness Redefined” breakout event for the Columbus 2050 initiative. The event took place at Easton Town Center where the national City in 2050 exhibit was on display until August 25th. Throughout the event, local experts discussed and identified priorities for development in Central Ohio based on regional demographic trends.  The following input gathered during the event will be used to inform a long-term strategic vision for Central Ohio and a publication that will be used to guide regional decision-making.

The event began with presentations by local experts in demographic research and consulting. Presenters included Eben Dowell of Community Research Partners, Jason Reece of the Kirwan Institute for Race and Ethnicity, and Derrick Clay of New Visions Group and the Board of Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC).
