Join the conversation!

Date: Monday, March 16
Time: 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Where: Columbus Museum, 1251 Wynnton Road

Gehl Studio New York, international urban planners who design cities for people, will help us think about how our community uses public spaces to enhance public life. Please come share:
  • What are your favorite places in Columbus?
  • What are the qualities of those places?
  • How might we translate those qualities in other parts of the city?
Learn more here.   

"In a society becoming steadily more privatized with private homes, cars, computers, offices and shopping centers, the public component of our lives is disappearing. It is more and more important to make the cities inviting, so we can meet our fellow citizens face to face and experience directly through our senses. Public life in good quality public spaces is an important part of a democratic life and a full life."  --Jan Gehl

Columbus' First Bike Lanes

The first true bike lanes in Columbus are going in on Linwood Blvd between 6th Avenue and 10th Avenue. More bike lanes are planned for Hilton Avenue, Hamilton Road, and a few other places around town. They don't yet connect to form a route from place to place, but the plans are to fill in the gaps in the near future.
