Dear Friends of the City,
On November 19, 2017, AIA Columbus with other prestigious partnering organizations hosted over 100 professionals and community leaders to talk about our City at an event called The City for Tomorrow: New Urban Agenda for Franklinton.
As the City is bound to grow, we want to think big and imagine new opportunities for a better future. In many ways, technology has brought us closer together but we still find constraints related to economic and job access, climate and resiliency issues, access to transportation, diversity, civil rights, equity, education, healthcare and food availability. It is an overwhelming list, but we remain positive that architects, landscape architects, artists, developer, designers, planners, community activists and visionaries can team to harness the talent within our community and work together to solve some of these issues and make big plans.
We are very excited and hopeful about the outcome of this event and hope that this is one of many events that will continue the conversation. We want to thank all of our partners and ask that you continue your commitment and great contributions. Here is a video of the event and we hope that you can share with others as we will continue the conversations.
