Important Meeting Today

The Department of Planning and Zoning will be presenting the plan to change downtown Columbia today at 7pm at the Spear Center (formerly known as the Rouse Building). After the presentation of the plan there will be an opportunity for the community to express their thoughts on the plan. This meeting will probably be the best opportunity for the community to fix the plan before it starts moving towards being approval. I highly encourage you to come to this meeting and speak about what you think needs to be fixed before the plan moves forward.

Here are some blog posts about some of the concerns I have heard people in the community raising. If you share these concerns make sure you speak up about them at the meeting and please speak up about other concerns you have.

The Effect of the Road System on the Lake Front and the Grass Amphitheater
