Cincinnati City Council unanimously approved both the Kennedy Heights Urban Design Plan and the Kennedy Heights Urban Overlay District. The design plan sets ground rules for the type and appearance of business and residential development along the Montgomery Road corridor, mainly around the area of the Kennedy Heights Arts Center and the Montgomery/Kennedy intersection. The overlay district will act as the enforcement arm, requiring all building permits within the district to be reviewed for compliance by a zoning hearing examiner.
