SHOW ME THE RECORDS: The new Comprehensive Plan updates

Monday, May 7, 2012 | 12:01 a.m. CDT

Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives. For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to

The records: The Columbia Community Development Department has the latest reports regarding the making of the city's new comprehensive development plan, Columbia Imagined.

Why you’d want them: The plan reached the fourth of its six planning phases in April, and the city is still seeking public input. Residents can read reports that summarize public opinion so far. Reports from phases two and three are also available. Phase two examined the current condition of the city regarding services and opportunities provided to its residents, businesses and institutions. In phase three, residents identified 12 issues as priorities. 

Where you get the records: Go to, and click on "3. What Do We Care About" to read the phase three public meetings results. Or click on, "2.Who Are We" to read the phase two existing condition reports on the city of Columbia.

How much it will cost: The information is free.
