The Visions

RAPID 5 Project

ULI Columbus and MORPC have embarked on a project to develop a vision for an integrated open space network in central Ohio that will prescribe how to best use our natural assets to benefit our economy, manage growth, provide access for recreation, education, and health; preserve natural resources and environmental health.

RAPID 5 is a unique opportunity to create a shared vision for an integrated open space network.

It is a vision to reframe the connectivity of the region based on the natural geography defined by our waterways; to connect all Franklin County residents to the region's natural resources, cultural, and economic resources for recreation, commuting, commerce, education, and relaxation.
