Planning and Zoning Department

Once operated by the Hamilton County Zoning Department, Sycamore Township residents voted in November 1998 to establish their own local zoning and administrative procedures, much like that of the Hamilton County Zoning Department. The change would mean that the staff would be making zoning decisions in the Township. This new role for Sycamore Township is beneficial to the residents because we will be able to make our own decisions for our future.

The Planning and Zoning Department works with residents, business owners and developers to ensure that all new construction, all exterior renovations and additions meet the guidelines specified in the Zoning Resolution.  They also review and approve residential, office, commercial and institutional projects, including all signage in the Township.  In addition, the department acts as a liaison to the Board of Zoning Appeals and Zoning Commission boards.  The Department of Planning and Zoning is dedicated to the continuing prosperity of Sycamore Township. 

We hope you will find this site helpful and convenient.  Please be aware that information available here may not reflect the most recent changes.  Minutes and other documents available on this site are not official copies.  Official copies may be obtained by contacting the department directly.  Answers to basic zoning questions, zoning applications and application requirements can be found on our website.  For more detailed information or to discuss a planned project, please call the department at (513) 792-7250.
