Rapid 5: The Power of Parks and Waterways - Local Planners Unveil Designs to Connect

Featuring Keith Myers, Vice President, Planning, Architecture and Real Estate Office of Administration and Planning, The Ohio State University and William Murdock, Executive Director Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission with host, Jennifer Bullock, Anchor, NBC4. RAPID 5 is a unique opportunity to create a shared vision for an integrated open space network to benefit the Central Ohio economy, manage growth, provide access for recreation, education, and health; while preserving natural resources and environmental health. This vision will create a cohesive plan for the improvement and development of the publicly owned land along the five riparian corridors in Franklin County. This plan is intended to be much more than a parks or greenspace master plan. 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. Five of our community’s leading design firms have rolled up their sleeves and unleashed their creativity to imagine what is possible for the future of our waterways. The results of their work are imaginative and thought-provoking. They will reveal their intriguing designs for the very first time at the Columbus Metropolitan Club’s con*ver*sa*tion 2021.
