Transcript of "Going Places final Virtual open house"

  1. 1. Going Places Draft Implementation Tools:
  2. 2. The reason for Going Places We live, work and play regionally and through Going Places we plan regionally. We seek to offer more as a region in order for each community to prosper. MVRPC’s Board of Directors recognized the need for and importance of developing a regional land use plan to serve as a resource and guide to assist in local planning and decision-making processes. This led to Going Places, a regional land use planning initiative.
  3. 3. Going Places looks to answer three questions 1. Where are we now? 2. Do we like where we are headed and what are our choices? 3. Where do we want to go and how do we get there?
  4. 4. Going Places provides two things 1. It is a forum for people living and working in the region to participate in planning. 2. Going Places provides resources for local communities to make decisions with a regional perspective.
  5. 5. Going Places: Principles sound technical data analyses strong support from regional leaders extensive regional stakeholder engagement
  6. 6. Going Places Study Area The study area includes Greene, Miami, Montgomery Counties and the cities of Carlisle, Franklin and Springboro in Warren County.
  7. 7. 1. Where are we now? For more information, please refer to the Existing Conditions Assessments
  8. 8. Where are we now? What we have studied MVRPC documented where we are now through multiple studies and assessments.
  9. 9. Where are we now? • • • • What we learned Total population remained pretty flat: -1% change from 1970 to 2000. Population density in urban areas has declined significantly. The rate of physical growth of our urban areas outpaced population growth. The Region’s developed area has expanded with people and jobs moving out to the suburbs.
  10. 10. Do we like where we are headed and what are our choices? For more information, please refer to the Future Landscape Exploration
  11. 11. Do we like where we are headed and what are our choices? Community Involvement Community members, businesses, local governments and organizations across the region were asked what they want our region to look like. Community involvement included: • Community Workshops: 17 workshops in 4 counties • Focused Group Workshops: 16 Workshops in 9 groups
  12. 12. Do we like where we are headed and what are our choices? • • • The questions you answered What do you want our region to look like in the future? Where and how should the region develop? How should we do it?
  13. 13. Where do we want to go and how do we get there? For more information, please refer to the Going Places Vision
  14. 14. Where do we want to go and how do we get there? Concentrated Development Vision A Regional vision was developed based on four common values that were important to people from the Miami Valley.
  15. 15. Where do we want to go and how do we get there? Implementation Plan We are now developing the TOOLS needed to make the vision happen. The TOOLS need to: 1. Aid local jurisdictions and organizations during their decision making process. 2. Provide support and resources that local jurisdictions and organizations can use when needed. This open house presents a draft collection of the 11 recommended implementation tools for the consideration of MVRPC’s stakeholders. We need your input on the Tools
  16. 16. Tools for Implementation Plan Upon the endorsement of Going Places’ Concentrated Development Vision in April of 2012, the MVRPC Board of Directors hired a consultant, Wise Economy Workshop (WEW), to complete the implementation plan for Going Places. The implementation plan will consist of a set of “Tools—not Rules” that local governments and other organizations can use as a resource to enhance their planning capacity while maintaining a regional perspective on issues. This plan will also outline a decision process that will be followed during the development of each tool to ensure it aligns with MVRPC’s mission and goals.
  17. 17. Forum created for a consensus driven process Between April and November 2013, the Going Places Steering Committee and Planning Advisory Committee met on a monthly basis to develop recommended tools through a consensus-driven process. After reviewing and analyzing the results of the feedback provided by the committees, WEW has identified 11 primary tools that encompass all of the tools that demonstrated a relatively high level of committee support.
  18. 18. What is a Tool? To develop implementation strategies that have results, a variety of approaches are needed. During this process many types of tools were considered and discussed. A tool can be:
  19. 19. What were the important factors considered during the tool development process? Concentrated Development Vision In 2012, MVRPC Board of Directors endorsed the Concentrated Development Vision. The recommended tools were created with an eye toward carrying out the vision’s four common shared values that were important to the people of the Miami Valley.
  20. 20. What were the important factors considered during the tool development process? MVRPC’s Mission MVRPC promotes collaboration among communities, stakeholders, and residents to advance regional priorities. MVRPC is a forum and resource where the Board of Directors identifies priorities, develops public policy and collaborative strategies to improve quality of life throughout the Miami Valley Region. Recommended tools considered MVRPC’s expertise and capacity.
  21. 21. What were the important factors considered during the tool development process? MVRPC’s Strategic Plan Though our Region is made up of diverse entities, each with unique qualities, we are united by our similarities. Together, we comprise one community—the Greater Miami Valley Region. Founded upon the principles of regional collaboration, cooperation, and consensus building, the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) serves as the common ground where area partners come together to work toward a shared vision across the Region. Together, public and private partners develop and implement innovative and sustainable strategies that enhance the Region’s quality of life and economic vitality. Strategic Plan Goals: • Regional Stewardship • Vibrant Communities • Partnerships • Sustainable Solutions and Environment
  22. 22. What were the important factors considered during the tool development process? Regional Priorities Priority #1: Better Information For Strong Decision-Making One of MVRPC’s most important roles in the region is its unique capacity for improving access to information about regional and local land use and transportation. Priority #2: Strengthen Regional Collaboration The Region needs to pursue more proactive and targeted collaboration, both among local jurisdictions and among less traditional partners, including economic development agencies. Priority #3: Build the Region’s Capacity for Solutions Build on MVRPC’s strengths and regional role to increase awareness of effective land use, governance, transportation and economic improvement strategies, particularly through their ability to communicate with a broad cross section of the region.
  23. 23. Recommended Tools - What’s Next? MVRPC’s Decision Making Process The Going Places Implementation Plan summarizes the tools that are most likely to benefit the region. The best tools proceed to the next step of development. This entails an assessment of how each tool would be implemented, by which agency, and on what schedule. Each tool will undergo a thorough decision-making process before any action occurs. This process is displayed below. Based upon a discussion with partners, staff, and stakeholders during the assessment process, a decision will be made on how to proceed.
