C2P2 Logo

Columbus Citywide Planning Policies (C2P2) is a new approach to area and neighborhood planning in Columbus. C2P2 establishes a framework for future neighborhood planning and development review. It is based on best practices and policies developed by the City of Columbus over 20+ years of area and neighborhood planning, and it is the city’s most up-to-date policies for land use and design. Areas may vote to support C2P2 adoption for their area, similar to the past process for area plans (see materials below for more information). Updates to C2P2 will include community engagement. Columbus Citywide Planning Policies include guiding principles, design guidelines, land use policies, and land use plans for individual areas. 

C2P2 was adopted by City Council as a framework for land use planning on July 16, 2018. Currently, C2P2 land use plans are adopted in 4 communities and C2P2 Design Guidelines are adopted in 15 communities. (For more info, see Areas of Adoption)
