As ONE Community ~ Kennedy Heights/Pleasant Ridge are growing better together … Our Inter-Neighborhood Conversations have exceeded all expectations. In 2013-14, the two neighborhood Community Councils & two Business District Development Corporations joined with District A to begin our own Inter-Neighborhood Planning in conjunction with Plan Cincinnati, the City’s new strategic plan. Click on Inter-Neighborhood Planning to read our SUMMARY REPORTS and see some of the results from our 200+ participants. Get in touch with any of us – at any time – and become part of our growing better together! The complete Plan Cincinnati report is available at www.plancincinnati.org. You can access key sections of the plan here.
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:
