Explanation
BACKGROUND: This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Department of Development to make payments to Columbus State Community College for operational cost associated with the Creative Campus Action Agenda pursuant to Ordinance 2278-2016 approved by Columbus City Council on October 3, 2016.

Columbus State Community College collaborated with the City of Columbus 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 of Columbus 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. This is the third and final payment to Columbus State. The Columbus State Community College Board of Trustees authorized $300,000 to match the commitment of the City of Columbus.

The Creative Campus Action Agenda 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.

Emergency action is requested to allow Columbus State Community College to continue to provide uninterrupted service in the implementation of the Creative Campus Action Agenda.

FISCAL IMPACT: This legislation authorizes the expenditure of $100,000 from the 2018 General Fund Budget.
