NKAPC begins Latonia Small Area Study

The Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission has launched the Latonia Small Area Study, a study of housing, land use, transportation, and community facilities in the Covington neighborhood.

Interns from the Center for Great Neighborhoods and co-op students from the University of Cincinnati will be doing field work through September, compiling building conditions and land use data for each parcel of property.

The market study of demographics, real estate types, business types, housing and land use is expected to be completed before the first public meeting is scheduled this fall.

The study will include a set of recommendations and implementation strategies.

Covington mayor Denny Bowman pushed for the study in an attempt to rejuvenate business and housing investment in the neighborhood.
