Franklin Township To Develop Its First Comprehensive Plan


FRANKLIN TWP., WARREN COUNTY, OH -- Franklin Township has announced that the township will develop its first Comprehensive Plan. 

"The Comprehensive Plan will serve as a blueprint for the Township's future. This important document will be used by local officials and Township's departments to guide decisions that can help and support residents and local businesses," states a press release from the township.

The Comprehensive Plan will cover a wide range of issues such as:

  • Neighborhoods 
  • Parks  
  • Cemeteries, 
  • Fire service 
  • Public services,
  • Roads 
  • Infrastructure, 
  • Land use
  • Economic development 

"This is a very important document in guiding how actions are taken in these areas and impacts the growth patterns of the Township. The policies and strategies in the Comprehensive Plan will affect the day-to-day experience in the Township through providing guidance on improvements to future roads; what new development should look like; and priority locations for park and cemeteries improvements," reads the press release.

"The plan discusses where Franklin Township is, as a community, wants to be in the next 10 to 20 years, and how the Township is going to get there. Most importantly, the Comprehensive Plan is a document that would be written by the community and expresses what makes Franklin Township a unique and special place to live and work," the press release states.

The Township is launching a website and a community survey to start the process.

"The survey touches on many of the plan's topics and asks residents their ideas about the Township's oppo1tunities and challenges now and in the future. Sharing your voice during the Comprehensive Plan process is one of the most direct ways to influence the future of the Township," press release reads.
