Comprehensive Plan - NCH 2043

NCH 2043 A Plan for our Future

WHAT IS A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN?

A Comprehensive Plan, sometimes referred to as a Comprehensive Land Use Plan, is the foundational document for a city’s long-term planning and zoning. It lays out the vision for future land use, physical elements, and policies which guide a city’s growth and management.

NCH 2043: A PLAN FOR OUR FUTURE

PROJECT BACKGROUND & PURPOSE

The City of North College Hill is in the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan, which was last updated in 2008. The City has partnered with a local planning firm, Urban Fast Forward, CUDA Studio and Greater Ohio Policy Center (GOPC), to lead this process.

This effort began in Spring 2022 in the form of a series of public engagement workshops throughout North College Hill. We gathered input from residents, business owners, and other stakeholders on the current state of the city and what they envisioned for 20 years down the line. 

Once this effort is completed, the Plan will serve as the governing document and roadmap that will guide the City's future development in the coming years.
