Columbus 2020 Progress

The Columbus 2020 Regional Growth Strategy sets out to achieve four ambitious goals by the year 2020:

  • Add 150,000 net new jobs
  • Generate $8 billion of capital investment
  • Raise personal per capita income by 30 percent
  • Earn recognition as a leader in economic development
