Thanks to everyone involved in this project!
The Great Parks Comprehensive Master Plan was led by Great Parks of Hamilton County and a team of planning consultants. The consultant team was led by MKSK, a planning, urban design, and landscape architecture firm based in Columbus, Ohio and supported by management consulting and planning firm PROS Consulting, and research firm ETC Institute.
Along with Great Parks leadership and the larger community, the plan was guided by a Master Plan Advisory Committee. This committee included a diverse representation of Hamilton County residents and business owners and reflects the community Great Parks serves.
