Zoning Update Survey Available until February 28, 2021

The City of Columbus has initiated a Zoning Code update process and needs 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.  Zoning regulates development through standards that address such things as property use, building size and placement, and setback on any given parcel.  The first phase of this Code update effort is an assessment of the current Code and process.  Phase one is underway and will conclude in summer 2021.  As a member of the community, your input is valuable now in setting the stage for the upcoming changes in phase two. 

Please take a few minutes to share your observations about the zoning code by completing this survey, which will be available through February 28, 2021.

Kevin Wheeler presented this PowerPoint at the February 3, 2021 meeting. A video of the meeting is also available with NWCA Agendas and Minutes.

You can learn more about the update process and sign up for their email list by visiting the project website.   Please forward this information to others who might be interested.  Survey translation can be requested for the following languages: Spanish, Somali, French, Nepali, and Arabic.  Please contact zoningupdate@columbus.gov for more information.
