Dream it. Do It.: The City of Columbus

Teamed with ACP Visioning + Planning, Siefkas Public Relations helped the City of Columbus visualize the future of Ohio’s largest city and develop a list of neighborhood-based capital improvements to be initiated by 2012, the bicentennial of the city’s founding. More than 1,600 participants registered in advance for the Citizen Summit, and 250 people registered on the physical site, making the event the largest community gathering in Columbus history. The Bicentennial Bond Package put before voters in November 2008 to support citizens’ vision for the future, was approved.
