COLUMBIA - The Columbia City Council is meeting Monday to discuss the city's proposed comprehensive development plan, "Columbia Imagined."

"The plan for how we live and grow," may be approved and adopted at the meeting.

The plan focuses in seven key elements to help the city grow. The seven elements are: land use and growth management, economic development, inter-governmental cooperation, livable and sustainable communities, environmental management, infrastructure, and connecting together through the element of mobility, connectivity, and accessibility. 

"Columbia Imagined" began back in 2006. City Council has discussed the plan frequently ever since.

Members of the city of Columbia staff hope the plan gets approval, but they understand there may be things that need to be worked on. Since the plan is so comprehensive there is always the possibility that changes and amendments to the plan may be necessary.
