Fort Thomas Wants to Hear From You – Take the Survey


Have you been a resident of Fort Thomas all your life?  Or perhaps you moved here only recently.  Either way, your experiences within the city and opinions about our great city matter - now more ever!

The City of Fort Thomas Community Plan committees want to hear from you: what you like (or not) about the city; what you would like to see in regards to park improvements, enhancements to our business districts and neighborhoods and upgrades to our roadways (including bike paths and sidewalk improvements); and who you think the City should be partnering with to make our city the best it can be.

Since September 2017, six committees have been working on a multi-chapter coordinated Community Plan (Land Use & Zoning, Parks & Recreation, Transportation & Connectivity, Utilities & City-owned Buildings, Regional Collaboration, and Funding & Implementation).  As part of the Awareness Phase over the past few months, the committees have been focusing on Fort Thomas’ strengths and opportunities, as well as issues that need to be addressed in each of the six topic areas, with one goal in mind - developing a vision for our future that reflects the community’s collective aspirations.  And this is where your ideas and input are needed.


The City of Fort Thomas is conducting a series of six online surveys to gather your input – one survey for each topic area – available at https://ftcommunityplan.com/.  So far over 500 residents have taken the surveys.  If you haven’t done so already, please take a few minutes to share your opinions about what matters to you in Fort Thomas.  Each survey takes three to six minutes to complete, and you can take them all at once or some now and some later.  The questions range from “What types of goods and services are missing from our business districts?” and “What types of park improvements are most needed?” to “Do you think the City is adequately maintaining its facilities?  Plus there is ample space to provide written comments.

The online survey will stay open at a minimum for the next 60 day.  In addition, paper surveys are available at City Hall, Campbell County Branch of the YMCA and the Fort Thomas / Carrico Branch of the Campbell County Public Library.  

Survey results will help better understand residents’ hopes and concerns for our community. Interim survey results will be shared at the upcoming Public Forum/Open House to be held on Wednesday January 24 from 7pm to 9pm at the Mess Hall.  All are welcome to attend.

The Fort Thomas Community Plan is an important document because, once complete, it will help guide the City for the next 10 to 20 years. The survey provides an excellent opportunity for citizens to provide input on how Fort Thomas should develop and how the City should invest in the community over the next couple decades.  Please participate in the discussion, share your opinion, and help shape our future.  If you have questions, contact Ron Dill, City Administrative Officer at rdill@ftthomas.org.
