Xenia asking for citizen input on neXtPlan


If you'd like to have a say in Xenia's future, now is your chance! Nearly 10 years ago, the City of Xenia adopted its Comprehensive Plan, X-Plan. It was an award-winning, citizen-driven process and plan that has guided our community. Many of X-Plan's recommendations were implemented and followed. Now, it's time to update that plan and this time around it will be known as neXtPlan.

neXtPlan will be a set of goals and strategies for the future growth and improvement of Xenia. The plan will address land use, economic development, housing, mobility, utilities, public safety, and parks/recreation. Like X-Plan, neXtPlan will have input from Xenia citizens and community leaders. Community input is invaluable as this plan will help guide Xenia's direction for the next 10 years. The plan allows Xenia to be proactive to improve the city and market the community's assets/opportunities. It also allows the City to prioritize actions and expenditures in order to target them strategically, as well as identify funding sources such as grants and partnerships and improves the City's ability to pursue them.


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.
