Making use of theRegion’s existinginfrastructure
Preserving the Region’sagricultural land and otheropen spaces
Encouraging morecooperation between theRegion’s communities
The concepts represented by these three scenarios alsoreceived the highest levels of support in a phone survey conducted by the Center for Urban and Public Affairs at Wright State University.
• 94.2% of respondents supported housing and business development in existing neighborhoods.• 88% of respondents said that it was important for development to be concentrated around regional assets.• 85% of respondents said that maintaining and/or increasing farmland in the Region is important.• 94.5% of respondents said that they wished communities would communicate with each other more about land use planning.
The Preferred Scenario –named The Concentrated Development Vision –represents the core values, principles, andcharacteristics of the Miami Valley Region
The map of the Concentrated Development Vision uses a Density and Diversity Index. This index is designed to show wheredevelopment will be more or less denseand will contain more or fewer types ofdevelopment – such as houses, stores, or factories.
Zone 5 represents the areas with the highest levels of density and diversity.These areas contain at least two different types of development.
Zone 4 represents areas in the Region with higher levels of density and diversity.
Zone 3 represents areas in the Region that may either be less dense and have more diverse development or be more denselydeveloped with fewer development types.
Zone 2 represents areas in the Region withmoderate to low levels of both development diversity and density.
Zone 1 represents the least developedareas in the Region – mainly agricultural areas.
In Phase I, we projected that by 2040,the Region’s population would grow by3%, or 24,346 people, and the number of jobs would increase by 5%, or 29,865. Under the Concentrated Development Vision, wherewould those new people and jobs go?
The highest concentrations ofnew people would be located in the Region’s existing communities, with a large concentration in the City of Dayton and its surrounding areas.
The highest concentrations of new jobs would be located along I-75, within several existing communities, and near Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
