TPMA today announced it has partnered with the Planning and Development Services of Kenton County (PDSKC) and the Kenton County Planning Commission (KCPC) as their strategic consultant to review their Comprehensive Plan, lead as series of public engagement sessions, and provide recommendations and updates for promoting economic development in a post covid world. This is an important milestone in PDSKC’s mission to lead their communities, foster growth, and enhance quality of life through creative planning.

“We are very excited to partner with the Planning and Development Services of Kenton County and the Kenton County Planning Commission on the update of their Comprehensive Plan. The leadership at PDSKC has shown a deep commitment to making sure stakeholders and citizens have the chance to contribute to this update, and we look forward to supporting this effort” says Cecilia Harry, Director of Economic Development at TPMA.

TPMA will take a deep dive into the current Comprehensive Plan with particular attention to the elements of Housing, Community Facilities, Economy, and Land Use. Through inclusive public engagement, TPMA will provide recommendations on how these elements can respond to the physical, social, and economic changes resulting from the pandemic. The project is set to conclude in the fall of 2024.

“We are looking forward to working with TPMA and excited about the expertise they will bring to this important project,” says Andy Videkovich, Planning Manager at PDSKC, “The pandemic has shifted the way that people live, work, and play in Kenton County. This update will focus on how the Plan can adapt to these changes to drive community development, growth, and safety in this new era.
