What do we care about?

What do we care about? Development of Columbia’s new comprehensive plan is in its third phase. This phase seeks to identify favorites - what people enjoy most about Columbia — and issues related to growth and development. A short survey has been prepared to obtain your input.  Paper copies are available at City Hall, the Columbia Mall (Center Court), the Columbia Public Library, the ARC, Wabash Station, the Boone County Government Center, the Memorial Union or Brady Commons on the MU campus.  An on-line version is also available at Alternatively, if you prefer to share your ideas with others in person consider attending any of the following forums.  Just choose the one that best fits your schedule. The meetings will feature facilitated discussion on the same topics as the survey. YouTube video - Columbia Imagined Phase 3.
