The study completed by this team consisted of an analysis of nine existing plans that directly affect or have affected the Cincinnati neighborhood of Madisonville in the recent past. The analysis included aspects such as perception of problem, level of intervention proposed and community participation. Their conclusion indicates that the plans generally viewed structural issues like infrastructure and building aesthetics as more problematic than crime and poor social perception. Most plans leaned toward proposing surgical approaches rather than broad, sweeping solutions. And no plans appeared to have been truly community-driven via a bottom-up approach.
Back to all analytical work.
Back to all Great Streets and Gateways projects.
