Project Overview
In 2012, the City of Cincinnati completed an award-winning Comprehensive Plan update called Plan Cincinnati. It was the first update to the Comprehensive Plan since 1980. The primary theme behind Plan Cincinnati is “Thriving Re-Urbanization.” As this process evolved it became apparent that a conventional land-use based zoning approach would not enable the City to achieve this objective and focus on reinforcing the extensive framework of walkable urban neighborhoods that exist in Cincinnati.

The form-based code facilitates the desired urban form consistent with Cincinnati’s traditional neighborhood fabric.
