There are no shortages of proposals around how Cincinnati should use the ~$291M in American Rescue Plan(ARP) funds. I have myself suggested that we leverage it to invest in the Affording Housing Trust Fund and Capital Projects such as parks, Western Hills Viaduct, and biking infrastructure. But before we get into the weeds on how we should spend it, I think we’re missing a few steps including setting holistic, bold goals for what we should accomplish with it.

Business and government are of course different, but one thing should be consistent: spending choices should be grounded in clear objectives, goals…
