  • The second phase is to explore future landscape options of the Region. Unlike the previous phase, this phase will require extensive engagement of the regional stakeholders. Several land use scenarios will be developed based on the input gathered from stakeholders. We will be presenting various data and information from the previous phase and ask questions such as: Base on the information from the phase I, which area do you think should be developed? Which area should be preserved? Should there be more development or preservation? Where do you think are the areas that maximizes the existing resources? Land use has social, economic, and environmental implications. The land use scenarios developed will be evaluated using various indicators such as fiscal, infrastructure and mobility impact measures for comparison. At the end of the second phase, various but different land use visions from the regional stakeholders visualized and compared so that the informed decision can be make at the last phase.
  • Now that you’ve heard our engagement plan, let’s discuss what we’ve done on that end. First of all, we’ve scheduled 17 meetings in the four counties. We will be discussing outreach to focus groups later.
  • We’ve designed outreach materials in the form of posters, press releases, print advertisements. We have begun distributing these to the relevant jurisdictions in Greene and Warren Counties (because they are on the immediate time horizon). We have also been canvassing the jurisdictions and other organizations to find out whether there is a newsletter, either in print or online, in order to get the word out through that medium. We have been asking jurisdictions to publish a notice on their website. Print ads have been designed for all but Montgomery County, and will be submitted as paid advertising in…
  • …a variety of newspapers.
  • Ads for TV and radio are in the works. We are also preparing for a segment on “WHIO Reports” with Don Spang, Martin Kim, and Don Patterson.
  • We’ve constructed a Going Places Facebook page (please consider becoming a fan!), and we hope as the “fan base” grows, we’ll get some discussion started. We will begin guest blogging at various sites as soon as we can iron out some agency policies for that. We have presented at the Dayton Neighborhoods Conference and will present at the MVOPC Planning & Zoning workshop in December. Every presentation on Phase I (for endorsement or otherwise) will include a brief discussion of Phase 2. We will also be using direct outreach using letters and emails. Most important to our outreach effort is YOU. You are our most valuable outreach medium! If you can speak to, say, ten people, Going Places can become “viral” – this is the most cost-effective way of advertising, and you can bear a critical role. Please consider taking 5 minutes to speak to your friends and neighbors, becoming a fan on Facebook, or just spreading the word in one way or another.
  • Now, to address the other half of our workshops: focus groups. Focus group workshops will be held just like community workshops. We’ll hold one focus group workshop per targeted interest group, for a total of 8-10. We will settle on dates and send invitations to the relevant parties. We have picked our brains, scoured the internet, and asked around to find potential interested parties. If you haven’t had a chance to look at the handout, please do so soon. You may want to use the document to search for a particular group and get back to us later for simplicity’s sake. Who have we left out? Katy and I will take your ideas now.
