THE COLUMBUS GREEN COMMUNITY PLAN (2015-2020) Otherwise known as Green Memo III, the Columbus Green Community Plan is a five year plan created through an intensive public input process.  Internal to the city, the document serves as a directive to staff calling for active engagement in the outlined initiatives. Externally, it serves as an open invitation to join the city in becoming an increasingly sustainable community.  Advancing Columbus as a sustainable city is a shared responsibility in which the city cannot achieve on its own.
