Over 70 maps were created at the six workshops by residents and public officials. We have created a the following galleries for you to look at the different maps. Three of the six workshop maps have been posted, the remaining three will be uploaded later today.  We have removed the table numbers from each map.

Interested in looking at how we currently are using land in Northeast Ohio?

March 26, 2013 in Planning and Zoning, Tool

As part of the Vibrant NEO 2040 initiative, NEOSCC has completed the first-ever existing land use map for the 12-county region. This parcel-based map was built on detailed real estate information provided by the region’s 12 County Auditors and County Fiscal Officers. This map can be scaled to the size of individual communities and counties and can be filtered to show in clear detail the location specific land uses, such as industrial, commercial and park land.  Because it is based on current real estate data, this map provides a real-time picture of vacant urbanized land throughout the region.

Zoning Map

NEOSCC has also created a parcel-based zoning map for the 12-county Northeast Ohio region from the most current information supplied by each of the 393 jurisdictions in the region. This map can be scaled to the size of individual communities and counties and can be filtered to show in clear detail the location of specific zoning classifications, such as residential, industrial, commercial, and agriculture.  The GIS data behind the maps is included by county and each file contains the local zoning, local land use, NEOSCC zoning and NEOSCC land use codes.

A Platform for Discussion

October 24, 2012 in Communications, Conditions and Trends

In June, the NEOSCC published its first report, the Conditions and Trends platform.  The platform is the result of over 150 experts in the region coming together to look at Northeast Ohio and how our land use effects economic development, the environment, housing and communities and transportation.  The resulting report was transformed into what we call a platform or launching place for engagement. By creating an on-line tool, we ensured that the platform can evolve as we engage the region in a discussion about existing conditions and trends.  It also creates the opportunity to add more data, maps and graphics as we become aware of these resources.

We developed the Conditions and Trends Platform with four distinct ways for everyone in Northeast Ohio to learn about the findings:

Atlas of Platform Maps

Themes – five themes were developed based on the relationship between the findings;

Subject Matter (i.e. Economic Development, Environment, etc.);

Maps/Geographies – the site includes a Northeast Ohio Atlas of maps developed for the Platform; and

Search – the entire site is searchable by key words, location, and subject matter.

If you have not yet had the opportunity to explore the Platform, we encourage you to visit and share your thoughts with us!  

If you are interested in helping to get the word out about the Platform, visit our Communications Toolkit for email, mailing, social media and graphics resources!
