Community Plans

MVRPC’s Department of Community & Regional Planning partners with local communities and organizations to carry out their planning initiatives. Founded upon the principles of regional collaboration, cooperation, and consensus building, MVRPC is uniquely qualified to assist local governments with their planning efforts. Through a collaborative approach, our partnerships create innovative outcomes for communities and organizations across the Miami Valley.

Jefferson Township Future Land Use Strategic Plan – This project was a year-long, joint effort between Jefferson Township staff and MVRPC staff, designed to bring residents, businesses, and community leaders together in a dialogue to set the Township’s future direction and actions steps. The major outcomes from this project were community goals, future land use vision, and implementation strategies. This collaborative project was the recipient of the “2017 Outstanding Small Town Comprehensive Plan” Award from the American Planning Association (APA) Small Town and Rural Planning (STaR) Division.

Greene County Future Land Use Plan Update – MVRPC is assisting The Regional Planning and Coordinating Commission of Greene County (RPCC) with an update to their future land use plan, Perspectives 2040. Perspectives 2040 is a policy document that will provide guidance on where and how land should be used in the future. Likewise, it is a tool that will help Greene County prepare for the future by establishing a shared vision and identifying appropriate areas for development, redevelopment, and perseveration. To see the latest developments on the Greene County Future Land Use Plan Update, visit the project site.
