Community Planning

The Community Planning Division of the Planning + Development Department assists Hamilton County and its communities, agencies and citizens in planning and achieving sustainable development and related community and regional goals.

Our mission is:

  • To build planning partnerships for creating and implementing community plans in the context of the region.
  • To provide data management and analysis for effective planning and decision-making in Hamilton County governments.
  • To promote an equitable balance of local, county and regional perspectives and interests in community planning forums.

Staff provides services, upon request, to county jurisdictions that are members of the Commission and pay annual fees. Our services are tied to annual work programs of the Board of County Commissioners, the Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission, the Planning Partnership, the First Suburbs Consortium of Southwest Ohio, and numerous other boards and commissions that are working to improve Hamilton County.
