2015 State of the City Address
Welcome to Columbus, Georgia! This is our website, on which you will discover many of the features of this community that make us proud. Please browse these home pages so that we can get acquainted. We have an abundance of information to help you explore Columbus, and if you would like further information we’ll be happy to supply it.
We are Georgia’s first consolidated government, and we are proud to serve as a model for other local governments across the nation. The City of Columbus merged with Muscogee County in 1971, creating a streamlined system that provides a very high level of citizen services at a very low per capita cost.
Columbus is visitor and business friendly. We are in a period of unprecedented building and development, which is bringing our quality of life to new highs.
The U.S. Army’s Fort Benning, just south of the city, is the world’s largest and best Infantry center and is a very important part of metro Columbus. Phenix City, Alabama is just across the Chattahoochee River. Our tri–community, with its wonderful people and great climate, is simply one of the best places on earth—cosmopolitan but always neighborly.
The Chattahoochee, part of the nation’s Inland Waterway, is navigable to the Gulf of Mexico and the seven seas. Attractions in Columbus include the Chattahoochee Riverwalk, RiverCenter for the Performing Arts, Springer Opera House (Georgia’s State Theater), Coca–Cola Space Science Center, Columbus Civic Center, our South Commons Softball Complex including a world–class softball stadium, Columbus Convention & Trade Center and much, much more. I sincerely hope that after you have explored our home pages you will come to Columbus, Georgia and see for yourself!
