Building Multijurisdictional Consensus at the Central Ohio Planning & Zoning Workshop

By April 22, 2016Staff Activity

Jamie Greene, AIA, FAICP will speak at a session at the 2016 Central Ohio Planning and Zoning Workshop in Columbus, Ohio on May 20, 2016.

The one day workshop, presented by American Planning Association’s Central Ohio section, focuses on relevant planning topics and development trends for planners around Central Ohio. Sessions are designed for local officials, planning commission and board of zoning appeals members, community development professionals, professional planners, attorneys, architects, and other interested citizens.

The session, Planning at a Crossroads: Searching for Agreement in Multijurisdictional Contexts, will also feature Vince Papsidero, FAICP, Director of Planning for the City of Dublin, Ohio and Dave Gulden, AICP, Director of the Logan, Union, Champaign County Regional Planning Commission.

The session presents a case study that exemplifies how planers can build consensus on land use, infrastructure and economic development issues in complex, multijurisdictional contexts. It focuses on planning that is underway for a roughly 1,000-acre area along the State Route 161/Post Road and Hyland Croy Road corridor that is facing significant development pressure, which is straining existing infrastructure (road, water and sewer, and stormwater). The effort is being led by the jurisdictions of Jerome Township, the City of Dublin, the City of Marysville, and Union County in collaboration with the Logan, Union, Champaign County Regional Planning Commission. The jurisdictional context includes three counties, two cities, two townships, three school districts and three utility providers.

We hope to see many of our Central Ohio clients and partners at the workshop!Crossroads_image4
