Columbia epitomizes the New Town Movement in the United States. At its inception, the New City was carefully and purposefully planned, developed and built in order to address many of the issues that affect urban areas across the United States. To honor the remarkable achievements of Columbia, we have planned a true celebration that honors the past, embraces the present and strives to advance the ideals of this progressive, vibrant and inclusive community.
