Adopted Plans

Plans are adopted by Columbus City Council to guide development review within the city, specifically focusing on rezoning and variance requests. Adopted plans focus on land use and design. Planning Division staff work with community members to develop and build consensus for the plans prior to Council adoption. 

Adopted plans apply to specific geographies. To view plans for an area of Columbus, visit the Document Library. To view documents related to the Columbus Citywide Planning Policies, search for "C2P2" in the library.

To view plan boundaries or to search for a site specific plan recommendation, go to the Columbus Site Information Resource map (CSIR). The map includes a variety of site specific data related to development including zoning data and plan recommendations. To learn how to view the adopted plan data in the map watch this short instruction video.
