The Columbia Area Transportation Study Organization (CATSO) recently extended its existing Long Range Transportation Plan from 2030 to 2040. The plan will outline the future of Columbia’s transportation regarding current transit, alternative modes of transportation and non-motorized transportation for the next 27 years.
Columbia City Council voted Monday night to hire an outside consulting service to help with the revision of the city’s zoning ordinances and subdivision regulations. Council members hope hiring an outside consultant to focus on city-specific zoning issues will help spur urban growth. Community Development Director Tim Teddy says the project would be a multiyear effort.
