Government officials, developers and concerned citizens gathered Tuesday in hopes of finding answers to the city's million-dollar question: What should Downtown look like in 10 years?

The final public meeting for the 2010 Downtown Columbus Strategic Plan laid out a series of development principles and ideas based on them.

Primary goals included connectivity, increasing density and encouraging public-private partnerships, said Keith Myers, a principal with MSI Design, which was charged with guiding the project. Ideas ranged from adding medians along Broad Street to contracting the Scioto River by removing dams.

More than 1,100 public comments were received since February.

The plan eventually will head to City Council, which will hold public hearings before deciding which parts to adopt, Myers said.
