Going Places

Final Recommended Implementation Tools

Upon the endorsement of Concentrated Development Vision in April of 2012, Going Places Steering and Planning Advisory Committees convened monthly between April and November, 2013. Led by Ms. Della Rucker from the Wise Economy Workshop, committee members participated in a consensus driven process for the purpose of identifying and evaluating a series of implementation tools -specific programs and resources that would enhance local governments and other organizations their planning capacity and facilitate the implementation of Concentrated Development Vision.

The Going Places committees, who have reviewed several draft versions, had the last committee meeting on March 5, 2014 and reached consensus to forward the final set of 11 implementation tools recommendation to MVRPC’s Technical Advisory Committee and Board of Directors.  


Draft Recommended Implementation Tools

The following documents present a draft collection of 11 Implementation Tools for the consideration of MVRPC’s stakeholders in preparation for completion of the final phase of the Going Places process.

Final refinement of the implementation tools will be made over the next several months based on the review and input from the general public through three open houses, and MVRPC Board of Directors, Technical Advisory Committee, Going Places Steering Committee, and Planning Advisory Committee.

The Going Places Initiative

In July 2007, MVRPC began a regional land use planning initiative called Going Places: An Integrated Land Use Vision for the Miami Valley Region. This three-phase initiative will build a regional land use plan from a shared future land use vision. This conceptual regional plan will provide our local communities with a regional perspective on future land use decisions.

The planning area includes Greene, Miami, and Montgomery counties and the cities of Carlisle, Franklin, and Springboro in northern part of Warren County.

The 3-Phase planning process is:

Where are we now?

In 2013, the Going Place initiative is in the last half of Phase III. We are working together to develop the regional land use plan, based on the Concentrated Development Vision.
