Columbus Land Use Recommendations

Columbus Land Use Recommendations

This webmap is a digital representation of land use recommendations from adopted Columbus area and neighborhood plans. The hardcopy area and neighborhood plans from which these recommendations are taken are the official plans. This webmap is offered as a means of conveniently identifying a given site's recommended land use. The webmap illustrates a generalized representation of the recommended land use ("Generalized Land Use Recommendation"). Left clicking on the given site will produce a pop up box that includes the locations' specific land use recommendation ("Specific Land Use Recommendation"). Descriptions of the "Specific Land Use Recommendation" categories, along with any density and design related plan recommendations, are provided in the plan document (available via hyperlink by left clicking on a given site). Not all Columbus area and neighborhood plans include land use recommendations. If clicking on a site indicates "NA" in the "Generalized Land Use Recommendation" pop-up, it is likely because the plan does not include a land use recommendation for that site. This does not mean that the plan may not include generalized land use recommendations or other relevant information. All users are encouraged to refer to the given area and neighborhood plan to confirm any recommended land use from the webmap and identify additional or generalized land use and design related recommendations that may apply to a given site. As indicated in the hardcopy area and neighborhood plans, land use recommendations from area and neighborhood plans are not code, but as an adopted plan provide guidance on neighborhood and city review of any rezoning or variance requests. The city's zoning code is available at municode.com.
