Dearborn County Strategic Action Plan

Transportation challenges and other obstacles limited Dearborn County’s growth despite its location in the greater Cincinnati metropolitan area.  Building on its previous experience leading local and regional planning efforts, HWC was tasked with developing a strategic plan to help Dearborn County communities reach their full potential.  The county-wide Strategic Action Plan established eight economic development priorities.  This innovative planning process utilized individual community plans as the foundation for the Strategic Action Plan. This enabled HWC to quickly identify common concerns and propose strategies that capitalized on the communities’ shared opportunities.
