The Cincinnati Region
The Greater Cincinnati area-spanning 15 counties in three states-is known as Cincinnati USA for marketing purposes. Cincinnati USA was named as one of the "Top 10 U.S. Cities For Work and Family" by Fortune Magazine and one of "America's Most Livable Cities" by Partners for Livable Communities. The region features a mild climate, world-class arts organizations and museums, professional sports teams, 40,000 acres of green space and major cultural events. It often plays host to traveling arts, culture, political forums and sports events of national or international prominence.

Blue Ash is an integral part of the metropolitan area that has been traditionally anchored by the City of Cincinnati. Regional population shifts and incremental growth have moved northward from Cincinnati, creating new communities which extend the metropolitan reach significantly past Blue Ash into adjacent counties. This shift positions Blue Ash as the virtual epicenter geographically between downtown Cincinnati and the effective metropolitan reach.
Municipal planners project that growth southward from Dayton and the burgeoning, northerly movement from Cincinnati soon will connect to form a dynamic corridor of commerce and consumers between metropolitan Dayton and the Greater Cincinnati region. When this occurs, Blue Ash is poised to be a primary anchor at the southern end of the corridor because of its attractive mix of commerce, beauty and stature as a model city.
