The focus of this fall's event will be a discussion of the Neighborhood Planning Process that the Community Development Department is rolling out. This process invites people to come together for the purpose of developing a shared vision for their neighborhood. The focus of the neighborhood plans will be on land use within neighborhoods as suggested by the Columbia Imagined Comprehensive Plan, which can be viewed online at www.columbiaimagined.com. In addition, participants will hear about the Office of Neighborhood Services' partnership with the Health Department's Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods Action Team and the work toward promoting social connections within neighborhoods and neighborhood safety. The COMO Connect Information Bus will also be on hand to help educate participants on Columbia's completely revamped transit system.
Prior to the Congress, from 5-6 p.m., City departments will be available to provide information on city services, and several Council members will be on hand to conduct constituent "office hours". The final list of Council availability is being developed and will be made available soon. For more information, or if you are in need of special accommodations, please contact Bill Cantin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 573.874.7248. We look forward to seeing you on September 10!
