This activity is about determining where to locate regional facilities in Hamilton County.
The four examples we will be looking at are:
• Regional Commercial Centers
• Regional Industrial Parks
While these regional facilities are vital to our health and economy, it can be difficult to select locations for them due to their size, impacts on the land, extent of service area, and community concerns.
Hamilton County supports around 350,000 people in over 500 square miles. Some of this land area is already developed and other areas contain sensitive natural resources that may need preservation or protection. These and other issues must be considered.
When siting these regional facilities, there are technical requirements and safety concerns which must be taken into consideration. We also know the public often has concerns about potential impacts from these facilities on the surrounding communities.
We’re asking you to tell us what is important to you when choosing locations for these regional facilities.
