Vision for the City of Columbus

My Vision for the City of Columbus: My vision for the city is for growth and that the city can become the economic center of the Golden Triangle. I believe this can best be done by emphasizing and expanding retail sales and tourism. I believe that we must invest in ourselves for our city to grow. This will take a commitment on everyone’s part. Our city must undergo change and we must look at annexation. I would also like to see our city increase opportunities for our children in sports and education. Our city can best accomplish these goals by a unified effort to attract new individuals to locate and invest in Columbus.
