RAPID 5 is a vision to redefine Central Ohio’s quality of life by transforming how we use our abundant waterways and vibrant green spaces. Acting as a catalyst and convener, RAPID 5’s mission is to unite our regions assets, knitting more than 80 communities together.
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
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.
