  2. 2. Agenda Going Places Overview Presentation of Final Preferred Land Use Scenario Presentation and Discussion of Potential Implementation Concepts
  3. 3. A region-based land use planninginitiative designed for developing a shared regional future land use framework for the year 2040
  4. 4. Planning Process and Scope We are hereStudy Area covers Greene, Miami, and Montgomery counties and Cities of Carlisle, Franklin, and Springboro in Warren County
  5. 5. Phase I Existing Condition Assessment: Completed Studies

  8. 8. Phase II Future Landscape Exploration:How and Where should the Region develop?
  9. 9. Scenario Building through Civic Engagement
  10. 10.  First Workshop with the Steering and Planning Advisory Committee members 17 Community-based workshops 15 Focused Group workshops  Social and cultural group  Business and economic development group  Transportation and infrastructure group  Environmental group  Planning group  Higher education group  Young professional group  Middle/High school group
  11. 11. Scenario Assessment through Performance Indicators
  12. 12. Future Land Use Scenarios and Assessment  Seven alternative future land use scenarios addressing the question “where and in what ways should the region develop by 2040?”  Assessment of the potential effects of each scenario on the region measured using a set of 12 performance indicators
  13. 13. Sharing Seven Scenarios and Assessment Results
  14. 14. Phase III Building a Clear and Shared Regional Land Use Framework Identify, develop, and evaluate a preferred scenario Develop and build consensus around the 2040 Regional Growth Framework Seek approval from the MVRPC Board of Directors
  15. 15. The 2040 Regional Growth Framework will be more than a map – it will alsorepresent the core values, principles, and characteristics of the Miami Valley and include recommendations for regional policies and strategies for implementation
  16. 16. Process and Timeline
  17. 17. Final Preferred Scenario Identify the final preferred scenario using:  Distribution of participants amongst the seven scenarios during the scenario building workshops  Scenario voting results from the Going Places Steering and Planning Advisory Committee members, public open houses, and mail and web surveys  Results from the phone survey Evaluate the final preferred scenario using the 12 performance indicators

  24. 24. Phone Survey Conducted by the Center for Urban and Public Affairs at Wright State University Representative sample of 400 participants Series of questions designed to indicate the values of the participants with respect to land use Analysis by CUPA indicates that the Infill/Conservation Development scenario had the highest degree of support Some support also for Asset-Based Development and Mixed- Themes Development
  25. 25. Final Preferred Scenario Based on voting and phone survey results, the final preferred scenario is a combination of three scenarios: Infill/Conservation Development Asset-Based Development Mixed Themes Development
  26. 26. Concentrated Development The Final Preferred Scenario Future development focused around regional assets Future development concentrated in areas with existing support infrastructure Encouraging the rehabilitation and/or repurposing of existing structures Increasing the number and quality of transportation options Reviving the Region’s core city and older communities Using land in a way that builds a sense of community
  27. 27. Potential Implementation Concepts What we’re going to do today:  Organize everyone into groups  Give everyone a list of potential implementation concepts  Ask each group to work together to organize the concepts into three categories:  Highest Importance  Moderate Importance  Lowest Importance Two rules  Up to 5 concepts in the Highest Importance category  Can add one additional concept in the Highest Importance category
  28. 28. Potential Implementation Concepts What will happen next?  The rankings will appear in the final Going Places report to indicate which potential concepts are considered most important  MVRPC staff will use this ranking of the concepts when devising a list of potential implementation policies
  29. 29. Potential Implementation Concepts How we derived them:  Drew from several sources:  Think Cards  Mind Maps  Comments from the online voting  Comments from the mail survey  Selected concepts that best represented some of the most popular and important comments made by participants
  30. 30. Potential Implementation Concepts Encourage the rehabilitation and/or Region’s assets repurposing of existing structures  Encourage the rehabilitation/reuse of Focus on the maintenance of existing vacant industrial sites infrastructure  Encourage energy-efficient building Locate any new development in areas practices and the retrofitting of existing with existing infrastructure structures for energy efficiency Revive the Region’s older  Use land in a way that builds a sense of communities community Preserve prime farmland and support  Maintain and expand the Region’s agricultural enterprise parks, natural areas, and recreational Improve the quality of educational amenities opportunities throughout the Region  Discourage greenfield development Foster a sense of connection and  Encourage the development of quality, cooperation between the Region’s realistic affordable housing throughout communities the Region Increase the number and quality of  Revive the Region’s core city – the transportation options City of Dayton Encourage development around the
  31. 31. Next Steps Consensus Building Develop and evaluate a preferred scenario  Public Open Houses  Presentation and Input Evaluate best practice Solicitation implementation concepts  Endorsement and Formal Develop the 2040 Review Regional Growth Framework  Approval from MVRPC Board of Directors
  32. 32. Strong Leadership and Support are Critical Incorporate sound technical analysis of good quality data throughout the process Facilitate meaningful discussions and build a regional consensus Seek extensive regional stakeholder engagement so that the outcome reflects a collective vision of regional stakeholders Build a partnership with local jurisdictions and work closely with their staff Foster strong support from regional leaders in both public and private sectors Better integrate the Going Places planning process into MVRPC’s current regional transportation planning process
