The Fort Thomas Comprehensive Community Plan, developed by the city and its project partners CT Consultants and Human Nature, has earned a 2019 Cincinnati Design Award. The award was presented at the organization’s annual awards banquet held November 8 in Cincinnati’s Memorial Hall.

The Cincinnati Design Awards is a program that “recognizes the best built-environment design produced by Cincinnati-area creative firms and promotes the social and economic value of good design in our community.”

Each year a nationwide jury of design professionals presents the awards to projects submitted by local architecture, interior, landscape and experiential graphic designers, as well as community planners. The awards include six categories: building architecture, interior architecture, landscape architecture and community planning, experiential graphics (building wayfinding, signage and related graphics), interdisciplinary projects and innovation.

The Fort Thomas plan received the top honor in the Interdisciplinary project category. These projects "exemplify design excellence through successful implementation of integrated design across disciplines at any scale, type, or budget."

The project design team included Frank Twehues, Kristin Hopkins, Emily Bills, Mark Brueggemann, Robert Seitzinger, Chris Manning and Sara DiLandro.

City Administrator Ron Dill shared the news at the November Fort Thomas city council meeting. He congratulated the city plan team and the community.

"We know how our hard work is certainly paying off for us, but it is now being recognized elsewhere," he said.
