The Westwood 2010 Strategic Plan
The 2010 Westwood Strategic Plan was written with the objective of communicating the vision and goals of the Westwood community. Its mission is to create a dynamic plan that will guide the residents of Westwood and the City of Cincinnati in the application and allocation of resources in order to improve our community. In addition, it will provide a framework of expectations for developers and businesses considering operating in Westwood. The plan addresses tactical and strategic objectives while providing a mechanism for adaptation to the changing needs of the community.
