Comments sought on Plan Cincinnati

The public is invited to comment on the draft version of Plan Cincinnati, the City's first comprehensive master plan since the Coordinated City Plan of 1980.

The draft plan, more than two years in the making, focuses on five core initiative areas: compete, connect, live, sustain, and collaborate.

The document draws upon hours of community input, the output of several working groups, and recommendations from other recent local and regional plans, including GO Cincinnati, the Green Cincinnati Action Plan, United Way's State of the Community Report and Indicators, Agenda 360, Community COMPASS, the OKI 2030 Transportation Plan and the OKI Strategic Regional Policy Plan.

Comments can be submitted through April 20 to Chris Morbitzer at, and soon can be submitted directly from the project website.

Feedback will be used to update the draft document, which will be submitted to the City Planning Commission later this summer or early fall.
