The Columbia Community Development Department introduced its new neighborhood-planning program at a neighborhood congress last night at Boone County Public Health and Human Services. The department plans to start working with neighborhood associations around Columbia. City planner Rachel Bacon says the department wants to help each neighborhood association to create individualized objectives for their boroughs.


  The City of Columbia has received a grant to help fix up historic properties.

Columbia holds about 140 officially recognized historic properties and many other unofficial historic homes. With the new grant from the state, city planner Rachel Bacon said the city’s preservation commission has found a way help property owners who are intimidated by updating their homes: A do-it-yourself seminar series.
