Land Use Plan

Established in 1803, Sycamore Township began as a rural preserve on the edge of the city.  Today it is home to over 23,000 residents and boasts over 2 million square feet of retail space and over 750,000 square feet of office space. The Board of Trustees have long understood the importance of developing and maintaining a Land Use Plan to guide future growth and development. Such a plan enables Sycamore Township to maintain and increase the quality of life that those who live and work here currently enjoy.

The first planning efforts by the Township were developed in the mid 1980’s in conjunction with the Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission and were focused on the Montgomery Road Corridor between Silverton and the northern Hamilton County boundary line. In the mid 1990’s, after Sycamore Township established its own Planning and Zoning Department, the Trustees adopted Land Use Plans for both the northern and southern sections of the Township to manage the dramatic growth in the entire Township.  In 2008, the Land Use Plans for north and south were  updated.

Currently, Sycamore Township is once again in the process of reviewing the Land Use Plan and has enlisted the help of its residents. Thank you to the following residents who have volunteered and been selected to share their time and talent for the benefit of our community as part of an ad hoc Land Use Steering Committee:

The Land Use Steering Committee held its introductory meeting in October, 2019 and will continue to meet as needed in the coming months to evaluate the current plan, discuss research and formulate recommendations to the Board of Trustees.  Their efforts will include examining land use in the Township as a means to control the location, type and quality of development and redevelopment in relation to the ability of the Township to provide the necessary infrastructure, in a fiscally sound and responsive manner, while preserving the quality of life that makes Sycamore Township attractive to residents and business owners alike.
