MU Extension in the Central Region

Columbia Imagined: The plan for how we live and grow is an aggressive public engagement process for the City of Columbia. More than 1,500 residents have participated in community forums, surveys and social media to provide their perspectives on defining the community. Participants mapped the issues affecting future growth and development and generated more than 360 goals as the community considers future development options. MU Extension's Community Development program is helping to facilitate this process.
