Registration open for new season of Sustainable Hamilton Co workshops

A season of workshops begins anew this April with the first session of the Sustainable Hamilton County Workshop Series, and registration is now open.

The workshops, which are free and open to the public, utilize national leaders in their fields to promote discussion and collaborative action among participants that help lead to sustainable local development solutions.

Target groups include elected and appointed officials, planning and development professionals, developers and community development corporations, and students and professors from institutions of higher education.

Session I, "Fiscal Sustainability and Quality of Life", will be held at the Drake Conference Center, 151 W Galbraith Road, from 8 A.M. to noon. The session will cover the community effects of tax subsidies for business relocation.

Future workshops will cover best practices in business district redevelopment and universal design, a type of planning that considers all phases and abilities of human life.

The Sustainable Hamilton County Workshop Series is sponsored by the Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission Planning Partnership, the First Suburbs Consortium of Southwest Ohio, Duke Energy Ohio, the Community Development Corporations Association of Greater Cincinnati, the Community Building Institute, Agenda 360 and the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce, Housing Opportunities Made Equal, and We THRIVE!
