The Going Places initiative is currently in its third and last phase, building upon the results of the first two phases. Phase III of Going Places serves to ask the questions, "Where do we want to go? How do we get there?" It began in January 2011.
The goal of the Going Places initiative is to develop a conceptual regional land use plan, built from a shared land use vision.
The work for Phase III, then, has been broken down into two sections. The first is the selection and development of the preferred future land use scenario – the vision. The second goal is to use that vision in developing a conceptual regional land use plan that local jurisdictions can use as a resource when developing their own land use plans.
The Preferred Future Land Use Scenario: The Concentrated Development Vision
The Concentrated Development Vision was endorsed by MVRPC’s Board of Directors on April 5, 2012. It consists of a map and a set of principles and characteristics that show how people would like to see the Miami Valley Region develop over the next 30 years.
The Conceptual Regional Land Use Plan
The Conceptual Regional Land Use Plan will provide our local communities with a regional perspective on future land use decisions. It is currently under development.
The Wise Economy Workshop team, led by Ms. Della Rucker, was chosen as a consultant to lead the discussion amongst Going Places Steering and Planning Advisory committees. This discussion is an effort to identify and build consensus on the elements of the plan.
The consulting team conducted a survey of Going Places Committee members, MVRPC Technical Advisory Committee, and MVRPC Board of Directors during December 2012 to understand the development of the initiative to date. Click to view the survey summary report.
