You’ll read that Kennedy Heights and Pleasant Ridge are among 39 neighborhoods with designated “Neighborhood Business Districts” and among the 14 that also have “Urban Design Overlay Districts.” (These are good things.)  With these foundations in place, we’re poised to work with the City to achieve two vibrant “neighborhood centers” along Montgomery Road. Plan Cincinnati defines neighborhood centers as “the building blocks of our neighborhoods . . .  the traditional, walkable cores of our communities that feature not only commercial uses but also contain much of our civic infrastructure and the amenities that we need to go about our daily lives.” To discover all the planning that each of our neighborhoods has already accomplished, check out these links:
