Explanation
Background: This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to enter into contract with the Columbus State Community College providing support for operational costs associated with implementation of the Creative Campus Action Agenda.

Columbus State Community College collaborated with the City and other stakeholders beginning in 2011 and continuing throughout a two-year planning process to create a master plan/flexible framework. The plan has since been adopted by the Columbus State Community College Board of Trustees and is ready for implementation. The City proposed granting to Columbus State Community College $100,000 per year for three years beginning in 2016 to support operational costs associated with implementation of the Creative Campus Action Agenda. The Columbus State Community College Board of Trustees authorized $300,000 to match the City’s commitment.

The Creative Campus Action Plan identifies the need for dedicated leadership to advance the neighborhood stakeholders’ development initiatives. The plan coordinates the implementation of projects including green space such as neighborhood commons, shared parking, improved pedestrian access and modern/partnership buildings that support the region’s workforce and economic development needs.

Fiscal Impact: A total of $100,000.00 will be expended from the 2016 General Fund.
