What's neXt, Xenia? Make your voice heard!

neXtPlanXenia is YOUR home, we want to hear what YOU want for its future. 

neXt Plan will be a roadmap of the next 10 years in Xenia, and the community is the author of that plan. It will address land use, economic development, housing, mobility, utilities, public safety, and parks/recreation. neXt Plan is an update to X-Plan, which is the City's existing comprehensive plan.

So how can you make your voice heard? City staff, with help from a diverse citizen group called "neXTeam", has put together a series of surveys which ask a variety of questions. Answers from the surveys will be recorded, reviewed and will then be shaped into what will become the final version of neXt Plan. You can access the surveys in the links below. Surveys can be taken one at a time, or one after the other: 

This will be the first of many opportunities to participate in neXtPlan, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.  

neXtPlan is being developed with the assistance of a grant from the Dayton Foundation, through the Del Mar Healthcare Fund, for the Livable and Age-Friendly Communities Project. Xenia recently became a member of the AARP's Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities. Being an Age-Friendly Community means making Xenia livable for residents of all ages, from cradle through retirement. The grant will help to reimburse fees for consultants and other related expenses involved in public outreach and development of neXtPlan.
