East Central City Consortium, Inc.
On behalf of the City of Columbia, the F.A. Johnson Consulting Group, Inc. directed a comprehensive market study/urban design plan for a 1,000 acre area comprised of neighborhoods East of the Central Business District in Columbia. A fundamental component of this work program involved the compilation of relevant demographic data including income and housing information for low to moderate income neighborhoods in the core of the City. The analysis included analyzing the age and condition of housing, current trends, condition of existing infrastructure, and related economic conditions. FAJC’s services incorporated a comprehensive approach to neighborhood redevelopment by addressing issues of land use, zoning, housing, economic development, public improvements, historic preservation, and open space. Furthermore, neighborhood plans focus on realistic implementation strategies including costs, funding, partnerships and development priorities. All neighborhood-planning initiatives sought formalized participation from affected community and government stakeholders.
