Plan Cincinnati implementation kicks off

The implementation of Cincinnati's new master plan began in earnest yesterday evening with a kickoff meeting at Two Centennial Plaza.

At the meeting, City planning staff outlined the plan's recommended implementation process. Attendees then broke out into six action teams based around the plan's five core initiatives of Compete, Connect, Live, Sustain, and Collaborate, plus a Media and Marketing team charged with developing a marketing plan.

Implementation of the plan will be a long-term endeavor, meaning that there will be many opportunities for interested parties to participate in the future.

Plan Cincinnati, the City's first comprehensive master plan since the Coordinated City Plan of 1980, was passed by City Council last November.

The result of more than three years of work, the 222-page plan was the winner of the 2013 Frank F. Ferris II Community Planning Award from the Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission.
