As the City of Columbus is developing Connect Columbus, our long-range multimodal transportation plan, our partner agencies are also working at this time on important plans for their organizations and the region's overall future transportation systems.  These plans are:

  • COTA's Next Generation plan
  • MORPC's Metropolitan Transportation Plan-a 20 year long range, fiscally constrained and federally require transportation plan

These are individual planning efforts, specific to the goals and needs of each agency, but our efforts are not being isolated.  Together we are coordinating with and engaging community stakeholders for each of these plans.  See below for direct links to these other agency projects.

What is Slow Streets Columbus?

The Slow Streets Columbus program aims to improve neighborhood traffic safety and walkability by encouraging slower speeds through neighborhoods. The risks associated with neighborhood speeding can make it less comfortable for those who want or need to get around without a car, negatively impacting the quality of life for many residents.

Why is this needed?

Speeding through residential areas is one of the top concerns raised by Columbus neighborhood residents and is a safety issue for pedestrians, cyclists, and families with children. This concern was raised during the public meetings that were conducted for in-progress Envision Hilltop plan and One Linden Plan, and also via the city’s 311 system.
