Join us for our January Design Lecture on January 25!

Cities in the 21 Century cannot continue to see nature as a destination through parks and trail system development. The natural environment must become the foundation of growth, transportation network, and neighborhoods.

ULI Columbus and MORPC have embarked on a Rapid 5 Project to develop a vision for an integrated open space network in Central Ohio that will prescribe how to best use our natural assets to benefit our economy, manage growth, provide access for recreation, education, and health, and preserve natural resources and environmental health.

They partnered on organizing and sponsoring a creative exploration of the five waterways in Franklin County—the Big Darby, Scioto River, Olentangy River, Alum Creek, and Big Walnut Creek. The idea was to study knitting all five waterways into a single cohesive greenway system—one infused with exciting new ideas, expanded access, and community voices to benefit all Central Ohio.

This session will focus on the results of this exploration.  Attendees will hear from the participating firms:
AECOM:  Michael Bongiorno
EDGE:  Tedd Hardesty
MKSK:  Jeff Pongonis
NBBJ:  Megha Sinha
REALM:  Brian Bernstein
