The Visions

RAPID 5 Project

The RAPID 5 Project vision, created by the ULI Columbus and the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, is a vision for one regional park system along our five major waterways. The idea was to study knitting all five Central Ohio waterways into a single cohesive greenway system—one infused with exciting new ideas, expanded access, and community voices to benefit all of Central Ohio.

The Community’s Vision

The Vision:
ULI 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.
