Phase II – Future Landscape Exploration: Future Land Use Scenario Development and Assessment
The purpose of the second phase of the Going Places initiative was to explore options for the future physical development of the Miami Valley Region. Identifying and building Future Land Use Scenarios, which incorporate the important issues of "How and Where the Region should develop by 2040?" and assessing each scenario's social, economic, and environmental implications are the two major goals of this phase.
Phase II began in June 2009 and was completed in May 2011. During the first 12 months, a total of 33 interactive workshops were hosted throughout the Region designed to engage regional stakeholders in a discussion about future land development and to gather their opinions on where and in what ways the Region should develop in the future.
The information gathered at the workshops was compiled and processed resulting in the development of seven alternative Future Land Use Scenarios. Further, a set of 12 performance indicators were used to measure the potential effect of scenarios’ impact on land use, housing, employment, the environment, and transportation.
