planning

At least three Cincinnati Council Members are expressing concern after the city manager removed an item from the city planning commission's November 21st meeting regarding Wasson Way.  

Harry Black said he asked the item be removed because he did not believe it had been thoroughly vetted.  Black is also a member of the planning commission.  

Council Member Yvette Simpson said that action could mean there is an extra level of review for some items.

Cincinnati officials are seeking public input as they prepare to update the city's zoning code and map.  Hearings are continuing throughout this month.  

The documents guide where different kinds of businesses and homes can be built, what they can be used for, and how large they can be.  

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.
