University District Plan

The University District Plan will update and replace the existing University Neighborhoods Revitalization Plan (1996) and other planning documents for the University District. The planning area boundary is Fifth Avenue on the south, the Olentangy River on the west, the Glen Echo Ravine on the north, and the railroad tracks on the east. The Plan will include a land use plan, design guidelines for future commercial and residential development, and identify capital improvements for the neighborhood.

Public involvement in the planning process has been extensive and has included more than 25 stakeholder interviews, major public meetings on September 24, 2013, February 11, 2014, and September 23, 2014, presentations to University District civic associations, developers, and others.  To date approximately 350 people have participated in the process via the public meetings and online surveys, with over 2,000 pieces of input received in total. 

The draft plan is tentatively scheduled for the consideration of the University Area Commission at its November 19th meeting at the Northwood and High Building (2231 N High St Columbus, OH 43201).  It is important to note that the current draft plan under consideration includes the "Draft University District Plan" document, provided below, plus the edits listed in the "Summary of Recommended Edits to the Final Draft", also provided below. The "Draft Land Use Plan with Proposed Edits" and "Draft Land Use Standards with Proposed Edits" documents, provided below, include details on proposed edits to the draft Land Use Plan.  A final draft plan reflecting all edits is currently under development.  Please also review the "Plan Highlights and FAQs" document, provided below.
