Columbia 2.0 is a diverse group with a common goal: keeping Columbia, Maryland alive and thriving for the generations to come. We started out as a “young” people’s organization, but we now count as members folks of all ages, from all over Howard County AND many who have moved away, but continue to stay interested in what’s going on in their hometown.
It is our hope that those who are here now and those who have left will be attracted to Columbia in the long term because of its vitality, the opportunities it offers, and the very unique community it is.
In our view, the redevelopment of Downtown Columbia is the most critical issue that faces us currently. Over the last five years, we’ve testified and spoken to our neighbors and elected officials to help craft a plan – a plan that brings Jim Rouse’s dream of the “antidote to sprawl” to life, and fulfills his four original goals for the city he imagined and built.
Now, we’re ready to see shovels in the ground.
