Concentrated Development Vision – Implementation
If communities in the Region agree to implement the Concentrated DevelopmentVision, what would they need to do?
We are not asking people to makemajor adjustments to their planning processes if they don’t want to. Using the information we’ve gathered and prepared as part ofthe Going Places initiative is purely voluntary.
We are working with local leaders to develop a package of tools we arecalling the 2040 Regional Growth Framework
This Framework is intended to be a guide and reference for local officials and planningprofessionals as they plan anddevelop their own communities.
The tools thus far include:• MVRPC Staff• Four questions to ask when making planning and development decisions• The draft Growth Framework map• A list of potential policies• A list of existing funding opportunities
Tool #1: MVRPC StaffMVPRC Staff have many resources and alot of expertise. We have collected a lot ofinformation as part of the Going Placesinitiative and we encourage everyone to takeadvantage of it.
Tool #2: Four QuestionsThese are questions and local officials andplanning professionals could ask of anyfuture land use plans or when making landuse decisions. They relate directly to the fourprinciples of the Concentrated DevelopmentVision.
Tool #2: Four Questions• Do the plans take advantage of the community’s assets?• Do the plans make use of existing infrastructure?• Does this plan preserve farmland and other open spaces?• Has the community or the developers cooperated with other communities in the Region in developing this plan?
Tool #3: The Draft GrowthFramework MapThis map is a long-term land developmentstrategy – a guide for translating theConcentrated Development Vision intoreality.
Tool #3: The Draft GrowthFramework MapMVRPC has no legal authority over land usedecisions, nor is the organization seeking it.This map is intended to be used as areference for our local communities as theyadopt their future land use policies andimplement their own land developmentefforts.
Tool #3: The Draft GrowthFramework MapSix resources were used in developing themap:• An inventory of park land and other protected lands• An inventory of developed land derived from the parcel-level data from each county• An inventory of land suitable for future development• Zoning maps from jurisdictions in the Region• The Concentrated Development Vision• The 2000 Urban Area from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Federal Highway Administration.
The Infill Growth Sector These areas have the potential for future redevelopment.
The Intended Growth Sector These areas are undeveloped and have the potential for future new development.
The Controlled Growth Sector These areas are undeveloped but are zoned for future development.
The Limited Growth Sector These areas are undeveloped and future new development would need to be regulated.
The Preserved and Reserved Sectors These areas are either currently protected from or are not planned for future new development.
Tool #4: The list ofpotential policiesThis list is intended to provide communitieswith ideas for how they might incorporatesome of the ideas from the ConcentratedDevelopment Vision into their own plans andprocesses.
Tool #4: The list ofpotential policiesWe are currently working with local leaderson defining what this list should include. Thelist will be organized according to a set offive implementation concepts which wereselected by local leaders as the mostimportant in terms of implementing theConcentrated Development Vision.
Tool #4: The list ofpotential policiesThe five implementation concepts are:• Focus on the maintenance of existing infrastructure (roads, water, sewer, etc.)• Revive the Region’s older communities• Foster a sense of connection and cooperation between the Region’s communities• Encourage development around the Region’s assets• Revive the Region’s core city – the City of Dayton
Tool #5: The list ofexisting fundingopportunitiesThis list will consist of funding opportunitiesfrom both public and private sources thatmay help communities in the Region in theirefforts to implement the ConcentratedDevelopment Vision.
Over the next few months, we will be refining the draft Framework based oninput from the public, local officials, and planning professionals. A final version will be available some time in early 2012.
