Idea: Create a “Welcome to Columbus” website for new residents, especially new immigrants from foreign countries. The website would provide links to resources, including health care, education and legal services in multiple languages. In addition to providing needed information, the website would demonstrate the region’s openness to new residents, regardless of background.
