Join ULI Columbus and its partners on June 6, 2012, as we release the Columbus 2050 strategic vision and continue the dialogue of how we will LIVE, WORK, and PLAY in Columbus in the year 2050. Register here.

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.
