An 11-mile walking and biking trail is the centerpiece of a new economic development plan unveiled Thursday for Northern Kentucky's riverfront. Southbank Partners President Jack Moreland says Riverfront Commons would link six cities from Fort Thomas to Ludlow as part of Imagination 2020.
He says the trail would use a series of intersections called nodes to connect with places in each community.
Cincinnati Council is expected to vote Wednesday to approve the city’s first comprehensive plan in more than 30 years.
The Livable Communities Committee approved the proposal Monday night.
The document has been in the works for more than 3 years and focuses on what the city will look like in the future. Specifically it has strategies that for the first time focus on economic development activities in the neighborhoods.
Planning and Buildings Director Charles Graves described the plan this way.
