River South District & the Scioto Mile

In April of 2002, the City of Columbus published the Strategic Business Plan for Downtown Columbus. At its core, the Plan is guided by five action strategies: (1) build more housing Downtown, (2) stabilize the Downtown office market, (3) concentrate new mixed-use development around City Center, (4) create a riverfront park and promenade, and (5) improve parking and the movement of cars, transit, and people.

Trans Associates continues to undertake traffic studies to define compatible roadway plans – within the context of the Strategic Business Plan. A primary goal of these planning efforts is to improve “livability” to support redevelopment – while maintaining appropriate mobility. In addition, Trans Associates will assist the riverfront park planning and design team with Design Development of Phase I of the Scioto Mile.
