About the Planning Department
Our mission is to provide continuous, comprehensive, and coordinated planning efforts, through a proactive public participation process, that will provide for regional growth, and regional mobility, while fostering sustainable development sensitive to community and natural resources.
The Columbus, Georgia Consolidated Government's Planning Department provides research, analysis, and policy recommendations to the City Council and Planning Advisory Commission (PAC) on land use, zoning, transportation planning, historic preservation, subdivision plat reviews, and urban design. The Department also acts as the Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Columbus-Phenix City area.
Through the use of a trained, professional planning staff, the department promotes advanced planning initiatives, objective studies and reviews, and the involvement of the community in planning needs. The planning department is committed to bringing together the area's urban planning resources to prepare for the future needs of our communities. This website is designed to provide visitors with the information they need concerning planning in our community. The Department hopes visitors of this website will find it informative and will visit it often.
