The LinkUS Community Action Plan

As we prepare for increased population growth, the actions we take to address affordability, housing, transportation, and mobility infrastructure development will increasingly determine how successful this region can be. We know that changing historically fragmented and inequitable development patterns takes bold, deliberate action. It takes smart growth, planning and decision making. It takes our collective thoughts, insights, and efforts to move us from where we are today to a future anchored by aligned and connected communities that drive opportunity for all Central Ohio residents. It takes all of us to move us forward

Community Action Plan

Help us create awareness about Central Ohio’s growth and mobility initiative as we bring Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) to the region, create more walkable communities, expand access to opportunities and more.
