COLUMBIA — A public meeting to conclude the fourth phase of Columbia Imagined will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday in rooms 1A and 1B in the Daniel Boone City Building, 701 E. Broadway.

Columbia Imagined is a six-phase process geared toward compiling public opinion in order to create goals for growth in Columbia. The first three phases have outlined the plan, existing precedents for development and what Columbia residents are interested in.

According to a news release, about 300 citizens have provided input about phase four’s objective, "Where are we headed?" Concerns raised during the third phase, including jobs and community safety, have also informed the discussion.

Deliberation and votes will occur Wednesday evening regarding a total of 35 goals in the following categories:

  • Land Use/Growth Management
  • Livable and Sustainable Community
  • Infrastructure
  • Environmental Management
  • Economic Development
  • Intergovernmental Cooperation
  • Mobility, Connectivity and Accessibility

Those who cannot attend Wednesday's meeting are invited to join the conversation online through email, Facebook or Twitter.

Supervising editor is Hannah Cushman.
