Harrison Township, in partnership with County Corp and Montgomery County facilitated the first public meeting to initiate feedback on the Forest Park Area Plan. The meeting was held on Monday, January 29th at Horizon Science Academy. The area is bounded by North Main Street, East Nottingham Road, Shoup Mill Road, Riverside Drive, and their adjacent parcels.
The Forest Park Study Area has a rich history as an entertainment destination. A sizable portion of the Study Area was once the site of an amusement park and later transformed into a shopping plaza. Today, these 55+ acres sit as mostly vacated space with insurmountable potential for something new and exciting. Additional reinvestment has been occurring in the Study Area over the last couple of years.
MKSK Studios, consultants out of Covington, KY managed the flow of the meeting and encouraged active engagement to recruit ideas and suggestions from residents, leaders, and business owners. The project seeks to develop an economically sustainable plan to develop the Forest Park Study Area. Engagement by local citizens is essential for the project’s success.
