Community RE-Visioning

Thanks to all those who attended the RE-Vision public meetings.  There’s still time to submit comments online using the email addresses shown in the right column of this page.  The Vision Commission will provide a report of comments and recommendations to the City Council in the coming months.


In 2008, citizens created a vision for a better Columbia. They listed more than 100 hundred strategies to make our community a better place to live, work, play and stay connected. You are invited to “Re-Vision” Columbia for the next five years.
