Public comment was solicited for the plan. A housing plan for the Pleasant Street district north of Washington Park was unveiled by ReStoc Director Andy Hutzel. This plan was created by students and faculty of the Miami University Center for Community Engagement and the University of Cincinnati Niehoff Urban Studio through ongoing community visioning. The main event of the evening was a discussion led by Jeff Stec of the Urbanists, Former City Planning Director Liz Blume, and 3CDC OTR Project Manager Des Bracey concerning progress made in the implementation of the OTR Comprehensive Plan. more on this event and the urbanists' mission
