  • 15. Note: Cemeteries and Warren County data are excluded since they were not part of the 1993 Open Space Inventory Source: MVRPC 1993 and 2005 Open Space Databases Open Space Comparison: 1993-2005 Open Space increased by 15,000 acres (18.7%) between 1993-2005 The Region gained 379 open space facilities, an increase of 25% Agricultural land decreased by nearly 160,000 acres (10%) in the last 12 years The MPO Area experienced a decrease of 13.5% in agricultural acreage Open Space Type 1993 2005 Change Open Space Links 2,690.8 4,014.6 49.2% Utilities 4,540.1 6,415.2 41.3% Landfills & Mining 7,791.4 10,757.6 38.1% Open Space/Rec 53,726.4 61,825.5 15.1% Airfields 5,542.3 6,074.0 9.6% Schools 7,412.1 7,876.0 6.3% Regional Total 81,703.1 96,962.9 18.7%

  • 18. Conclusion Successful Open Space and Recreational Facility preservation and acquisition should continue. There is an inverse relationship between open space and agricultural land use. Open Space land use must be understood in the context of the whole land use plan. Open Space Planning is an investment in the quality of life of our Region’s communities.
  • 19. Miami Valley Open Spaces: A Shared Vision Open Space General Conceptual Map Created based on data from second Open Space Workshop Not Intended to be a Land Use Designation Tool
  • 20. Existing Open Space Open Space Vision - Conceptual Open Space Network Urban/Developed Land Uses Existing land uses designated as residential, commercial, industrial or any other built up and/or developed use (from individual county land use surveys). Agricultural/Undeveloped Land Uses Existing land uses designated as agricultural, forested, rangeland or any other open and/or undeveloped use (from individual county land use surveys).
