Scioto Peninsula Master Plan
The Columbus Downtown Development Corporation hosted a public meeting about the Scioto Peninsula Master Plan on November 8, 2012, at COSI. The community was invited to attend to hear the framework of the land use plan, and offer comments and suggestions. Materials from the public meeting are posted below.
CDDC has been asked by the City of Columbus and Franklin County to lead a process to create a strategic land use plan to determine the development potential for the Scioto Peninsula. The 2010 Downtown Columbus Strategic Plan emphasized the opportunity of building upon the existing cultural and educational institutions located on the peninsula in order to create a new neighborhood development that would both define the City of Columbus and help to revitalize East Franklinton, an area currently comprised of numerous vacant lots and underutilized parcels. With the addition of two new bridges across the Scioto River, an ambitious plan for East Franklinton, and the planned removal of the Main Street Dam, there is now even more reason to revitalize the Scioto Peninsula.
Using the 2010 Downtown Columbus Strategic Plan as a starting point, CDDC solicited ideas and input from the public. On August 13, 2013, CDDC presented the Master Plan to the public. See the links below for the Scioto Peninsula Master Plan presentations.
