Columbus leaders learning from the other Columbus in Ohio - WRBL

Columbus leaders learning from the other Columbus in Ohio

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday morning, leaders from Columbus flew from Columbus to another Columbus, the one in Ohio.

It is the 20th annual Chamber of Commerce inner-city leadership conference.

The goal is to learn how other cities operate and determine a way to bring the lessons learned back home to the Chattahoochee Valley.

To give you some comparisons: Columbus Ohio's population is roughly four times the size of Columbus, Georgia.

Their unemployment rate is just over 6%. It's above 9% back home.

Columbus Ohio has an economic development organization called Columbus 2020 whose goal it is to add 150,000 jobs by 2020.
