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.
September 2020 Update
On September 8, 2020, the City of Sharonville City Council adopted the Sharonville 2030 Comprehensive Plan (Resolution 2020-R-16). The plan, which can be downloaded under the Project Files tab of this site or by clicking HERE, will serve as a guide for future development. Moving forward, the City will begin work on the implementation strategies as identified in the plan. Some of these strategies may require additional funding, review, and/or authorization from City Council. One of these implementation strategies is to update the City of Sharonville Zoning Code, a project that was authorized as part of the overall Sharonville 2030 project. This update is intended to modernize the City's land use regulations addressing issues such as land uses, building and site design, fences, signs, landscaping, accessory structures, etc. Due to the COVID-10 pandemic, the public engagement process be tailored more to provide a safe environment for involvement.

Sharonville 2030 Zoning Code Update
Zoning Code Update Process
There are four major tasks that are part of the zoning code update process.
Task 1: Project Initiation - This first task is intended to gauge where the issues are with the current code and begin to identify potential areas of change.
Task 2: Code Evaluation - This task results in the creation of a code evaluation report that uses the public input to date, including that from the planning effort, to develop a narrative on where the City should consider significant changes, a chapter-by chapter analysis of the existing code, and a proposed outline of the updated code.
Task 3: Drafting - This task includes the actual writing of the updated zoning code with periodic review by a technical review committee and posting of the drafts on this website for public comment.
Task 4: Adoption - The final task will be adoption of the updated code with a public hearing in front of Planning Commission and City Council.
There will be opportunity for public input and comment throughout these four tasks, both online and at in-person events within the City.
