Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments
As the designated metropolitan planning organization , OKI must ensure that the region it serves has a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process that results in plans and programs that consider all transportation modes and supports regional community development and social goals. OKI is the federally designated regional transportation entity for Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren Counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell and Kenton Counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn County in Indiana. Below you will find the comprehensive OKI 2040 Regional Transportation Plan which defines the policies, programs and projects to be implemented over the next 20 plus years to create an integrated, intermodal transportation system that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods.
WeTHRIVE! is a county-wide initiative to make healthy living easier. In 2009, Hamilton County Public Health (HCPH) engaged schools, businesses, churches, elected officials and residents to address chronic disease by increasing access to healthy foods and physical activity opportunities, while decreasing exposure to secondhand smoke. In 2014, the focus of WeTHRIVE! expanded to improve the overall health, safety, and vitality of our communities. WeTHRIVE! pathways now include substance use/abuse, social health, injury prevention, environmental health, emergency preparedness, and chronic disease.
Our mission is “To create a culture of health, safety, and vitality throughout Hamilton County.”
What started with 50 people in three priority communities in 2009 has expanded to impact more than 270,000 people throughout 24 communities. This still-growing movement, which provides a framework to communities for healthy living, is a result of sustainable thinking from the start.
