Columbus unveils community vision plan


Columbus, Kansas today revealed its community vision plan.  Through a public survey Columbus  identified five target areas to improve.

Columbus Mayor Marie Nepple says the city's strategic plan aims to inspire private investment, downtown revitalization, broaden housing options, provide a fiber optic network and bring residents into a 21 century community.

With a couple of buildings on its way to being completely revamped Mayor Nepple says it's evidence residents are ready and able to move the plan forward.  She hopes to find a balance of maintaining and valuing the current businesses in downtown while attracting new ones.

"There's no level that could be higher in the excitement of seeing the buildings on the square being renovated, but obviously it takes the owners of the building and their vision on what they would like to see Columbus look like give us a prettier face so people want to come," says Mayor Nepple.

Columbus Telephone Company also made an announcement that it will begin a fiber-optic plan for the area allowing for a faster, more reliable Internet connection for the community.
