Looking Forward to the Future in Columbus

Like Daniel Burnham's famous Chicago plan, a bold plan for Columbus, Ohio has been proposed by the Columbus Downtown Development Corp. The plan, developed by consultant MSI Design, hearkens back to turn-of-the-century city plans that went unrealized.

Recommendations include such bold ideas as removing dams on local rivers to create 16.5 miles of parkland and designing a "creative campus."

From The Columbus Dispatch: ""We could rebuild Downtown in a way that hasn't been considered since the 1908 plan," said consultant Keith Myers, referring to a century-old set of proposals that included more city parks, more public art and a grand civic plaza that stretched from 4th Street to the Scioto's west bank."
