Hyde Park Plan Meeting - Monday, June 3rd

A new Long Range Plan for Hyde Park is finally nearing completion, after much time and thought from a Steering Committee of residents and business owners, working with City Planning Staff. Halted by COVID and then slowed by the need to make major updates to previous work, the plan is entering its final conception stages. Public meetings will be held on the completed plan, hopefully in Fall 2024, but the Steering Committee wants to seek your input now.

Please come to What's Up, Hyde Park? on Monday, June 3, at 6:30 PM, in the meeting room of the Hyde Park Library. This public meeting, open to all Hyde Park residents, businesses, and property owners, is both a conversation and information session on issues that matter to you:

  • Hear an overview of the new Long-Range Plan, ask questions, and learn about how it relates to Connected Communities.
    [This plan will replace the one adopted by the City of Cincinnati in 1983.]
  • Tell us your vision for the future of our community – What needs to be included in this Plan? What did the Steering Committee overlook?

This session is presented by members of the Hyde Park Long Range Plan Steering Committee. Please come, learn, be heard!

Requesting Engagement - Connected Communities

The May 17th Planning Commission agenda contains a single item: Connected Communities.

For those unfamiliar, the Connected Communities legislation, at present, contains proposed text amendments modifying multiple Chapters of Title XIV, “Zoning Code of the City of Cincinnati,” and Title XVII, “Land Development Code,” of the Cincinnati Municipal Code.

We are requesting that those of you with strong opinions please engage and consider joining the Planning Commission meeting.

During the meeting the full report (available at the link below) will be presented by Planning Staff. They will then allow for anyone from the Public to provide comments for up to 3 minutes. This will be followed by Planning Staff discussion and then likely voting.

Meeting specifics are below:

Friday, May 17, 2024, starting at 9:00 a.m.

Annual Meeting Bylaws Modification

At the April HPNC meeting Membership voted to adopt new bylaws. During the discussion prior to the vote a number of issues with the bylaws were raised. Rather than delaying the vote, as a number of members of the audience made very clear they had joined because of the previously announced vote, the HPNC President decided to hold the vote. Prior to making this decision it was agreed that a second vote would be held at the May meeting regarding the slight changes proposed. To that end, we are sharing a modified version of the bylaws adopted at the April meeting, which reflects those changes. We will be requesting a vote on these modifications as part of the May meeting.

Below are the sections where changes have been proposed to the bylaws adopted in April. You can see a clean version of the bylaws that will be put up for a vote at the link below.
