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.
To view a list of the organizations that have passed endorsements regarding the Concentrated Development Vision, head over to our community outreach page and click on “Round III – Sharing the Preferred Future Land Use Scenario.”
Developing and building consensus around the preferred future land use scenario was a 16-month long, four step process from January 2011 to April 2012. It involved active engagement of the public, leaders in local communities, and other regional stakeholders, along with technical work conducted by MVRPC staff.
Development in this scenario will be concentrated around regional assets and in areas that already have the infrastructure to support it. The rehabilitation and/or repurposing of vacant and underused structures would be encouraged, along with a more broad commitment to infill development – whether it makes use of existing structures or vacant lots. The preservation of agricultural land and other open space would be a priority, upon agreement by the property owner, as well as encouraging more connection and cooperation between the Region’s communities.
The purpose of the workshop was to discuss and establish implementation concepts and priorities. Elected officials and planning professionals from local jurisdictions were involved in the discussion, as well as professionals from other interested local organizations.
