What Is Skyward?


Community Visioning: Our Past…And Our Future

Northern Kentuckians pride ourselves on our ability to envision the future—but what really sets us apart is our commitment to buckling down, working hard and making our vision a reality. That’s why the myNKY vision is the latest in a series of powerful community plans for Northern Kentucky. In 1981, our region’s first plan, “Northern Kentucky’s Future: Plans, Projects, Potential,” built the Covington skyline we know and love today. The most recent plan, “Vision 2015: Shaping Our Future,” drove innovative projects and initiatives such as the Northern Kentucky Education Council, the Catalytic Fund, UpTech business accelerator and the Licking River Greenway and Trails.

Now, we introduce “myNKY,” a five-year work plan containing four bold and inspiring goals that will lay the groundwork for long-term community prosperity. With these goals, the vision is poised to bring success to our residents, families and businesses, fostering a community that is vibrant, inclusive and connected and residents that are healthy, educated and rewardingly employed.
