Adoption of Direction 2030 Comprehensive Plan
On September 4, 2014 the Direction 2030 Comprehensive Plan was adopted by the Kenton County Planning Commission. In coordination with Planning and Development Services (PDS), the South Kenton County Citizens Group (SKCCG) used the basis of the public surveys and continued small group discussions to develop the language and recommendations for the Rural Subarea of the plan.
Subsequently, SKCCG has begun the work to implement Direction 2030 in coordination with PDS and county officials. On October 23, 2014, SKCCG met with Dan Allen, Kenton Cooperative Extension agent, and Dr. Lori Garkovich, University of Kentucky professor and expert on rural communities. Information was presented on protections in place for agricultural communities and what other local rural communities have accomplished to protect their way of life
SKCCG members have formed three task committees to work on the recommendations of Direction 2030. The South Kenton Citizen Group welcomes the input and participation of all citizens in the unincorporated area of south Kenton County.
Roads (Recommendation 6)
This committee will deal with maintenance and safety issues on roads within the sub-rural area. Quarterly meetings are arranged with Kenton County Public Works and Kenton County Police.
Agricultural Economic Growth (Recommendations 1, 3 & 4)
This committee will be looking at ways to conserve and protect farmland. Innovative ways to support and promote agricultural economics are a focus of this committee.
Zoning (Recommendations 5 & 1)
This committee will focus on zoning codes, regulations and ordinances as they relate to goals of the rural subarea. Meetings arranged on an as-needed basis.
Services (Recommendation 2)
This recommendation is concerned with public services such as water and internet connectivity. Currently there is no designated committee for this task, but SKCCG is still involved with county leadership on these issues.
