Comprehensive Land Use Plan
Preserving Our Past, Securing Our Future
The Comprehensive Land Use Plan is a guide for future development in the Township. The document begins with current conditions within the Township as to land use, zoning, population and environmental conditions and includes the desires of the residents and stakeholders regarding future growth.
Residents and stakeholders of Copley Township have indicated through a series of public outreach initiatives, that they value residential land, public and green space, preservation and managed, responsible growth in Commercial and Industrial areas.
An update to the Comprehensive Land Use Plan was approved by the Copley Township Board of Trustees in 2019. The Plan is reviewed biannually for compliance and applicability and will undergo a full update in 2025.
