CMC: Built Environments Embrace Green Space

December 2, 2020 12:00 pm @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


This forum is The Harrison “Bill” Smith Legacy Forum and Downtown Commission “Smithy” Awards will be presented.

In the WHO’s Urban Green Spaces, a Brief for Action, it is stated, “Urban green space is a component of “green infrastructure” . It is an important part of public open spaces and common services provided by a city and can serve as a health-promoting setting for all members of the urban community. It is therefore necessary to ensure that public green spaces are easily accessible for all population groups and distributed equitably within the city.” Our panelists will discuss the importance of planning green spaces within Columbus and recent projects that are furthering green spaces within our city.

Featuring Keith Myers, Vice President, Planning, Architecture, and Real Estate, Office of Administration and Planning, The Ohio State University; Tim Moloney, Executive Director, Metro Parks; Sophia Fifner, Community Relations Chief, Columbus Recreation and Parks; and host Amy Taylor, COO, Columbus Downtown Development Corporation.

For this discussion on December 2, limited live audience seating is available. Paid registration is required by November 30. We cannot accept walk-ins.

In the spirit of our mission, we believe that conversation is essential to help our community stay strong and stay connected during the health crisis!
