Guest Speaker Brian Wamsley, Hamilton County Planner. Mr. Wamsley explained that the Hamilton County Planner works with all 39 areas in Hamilton County. This is free to NCH and will be present for 6 – 8 months. They want to meet residents and mentioned the newsletter has questions they want all of the residents to
answer—what skills does a stakeholder have? At this point they had a meeting with Deana Marshall with the Clovernook Ctr. For the Blind and Visually Impaired and NCH High School. 2008 was the last plan for the NCH and they are going to try a new approach. They want to find out as much as possible about the community; it is important to get everyone’s input for a comprehensive plan. A vision of the community as the plan will be around for a long time so they want the participation of the community. Also mentioned on-sight planning—in the field meetings.
