dc.description.abstract This study reviewed and commented on the Green Cincinnati Plan to enhance sustainability achievements, while providing a framework for reviewing and progressing sustainability in Midwestern cities faced with similar challenges as Cincinnati. Based on recent literature and planning practice, Cincinnati could greatly benefit by shifting problem solving to a regional scale and increasing action. Whether or not a municipality is ready to solve sustainability problems the time for action has come. No community can solve every problem short-term, by acting sooner they will be prepared and better situated for future plan revisions. Those communities who act locally to solve global issues now will benefit and be more resilient when international pressure for action is heightened. en_US
