Strategic Economic Development Study

Project Overview

The Economic Development Study is examining the needs of existing businesses in the historic Fort Mitchell business district (see general study area map). It focuses on improving the local business environment and will serve as a strategic resource for directed investment by the City. The study is designed to review essential elements such as mobility, parking, streetscape, sense of place, and communication among businesses and with the City.

The study will incorporate public input via a Task Force to guide the study, electronic communication, surveys, a business round table, and at least one public meeting. The final plan will be presented to the City Council for its consideration and will serve as a guide for local improvements.
