The City has initiated the second part of the Sharonville 2030 effort, which is the process to update the City's zoning regulations. Come back soon to review the summary of survey responses gathered during April and May of this year along with an evaluation of the existing code that will include potential direction for the update!
Shaping the Future of Sharonville
Sharonville 2030 is a project that the city is undertaking to create a new comprehensive plan and a revised zoning code to help establish a clear direction for the future of Sharonville. The comprehensive plan will establish the city's goals for elements such as land use, economic development, housing, transportation, utilities, and parks, just to name a few. The zoning code will help modernize the city's land use regulations, which addresses how buildings and properties should be designed and how they can be used, while also implementing the recommendations of the plan.
Sharonville 2030 will be a community driven effort where the community members will have a variety of opportunities to help craft the plan’s policies and provide feedback on the plan and code language. Over the course of the next 18 months, Sharonville staff members along with the firms of Compass Point Planning and McGill Smith Punshon, will be facilitating a number of public meetings, online surveys, and other forums where community members can provide ideas that will then be incorporated into the plan. This website is designed to be a central location to find out more about upcoming events, review feedback gathered during past events, and review or download reports and drafts of the plan and code as they become available.
