We need your input!

The City of Columbus has initiated a Zoning Code update process and we need your input. As Columbus looks to the future, it is important that the Zoning Code be positioned to help manage growth and reinforce community priorities.

While there have been many revisions over the years, the Columbus Zoning Code has not undergone a comprehensive update since the 1950s. The first phase of this Code update effort is an assessment of the current Code and process. Phase one is currently underway and will conclude in summer 2021. The assessment will guide the Code update which will take place in phase two of the process.

As a member of the community, your input is valuable now in setting the stage for the upcoming changes. Thank you for your help!
