Explanation
Background: This legislation is for the purpose of modifying Ordinance Number 0800-2019, passed by Columbus City Council on April 8, 2019, and to authorize the Director of the Department of Development to modify the contract with Columbus 2020.

One Columbus, the economic development organization for the 11 county Columbus Region, has set forth a vision for the Columbus Region to be the most prosperous region in the United States. To support the vision, the One Columbus team, working in partnership with state and local partners, will be focused on helping existing businesses grow and compete, diversifying the economy through the attraction of new businesses and supporting newly formed high-growth enterprises.
