The City of Madeira and the Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission will be holding a Camargo Road Planning Workshop from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM tonight at the Madeira High School cafeteria, 7465 Loannes Drive.

The study will focus on the business district from Euclid Avenue to the Indian Hill border.

As a gateway into the City, Madeira hopes to clarify the zoning code to make the corridor more attractive to developers.

While one side of Camargo Road is zoned for manufacturing use, the other side is mostly zoned for residential.

The study will also address underperforming structures, traffic flow along the road, and how to attract more pedestrian activity.

Tonight's workshop will be conducted in the charrette format, with residents and business owners breaking off into small groups to brainstorm ideas for the area.

A second meeting is planned for February to discuss the ideas from tonight's session.

Registration begins at 6:15 PM. More information can be found here.
