project Columbia City


In a wiki where anyone can edit, think of all pages as draft pages. This page is especially drafty. It's a work in progress… or not.

Feel free to adopt this page as your own wiki-project. Or take a look at other drafts that could use your attention.

This page focuses on ways to bring even more people to Columbia City's historic downtown core, making its pedestrian scene even more lively and interesting.
