NEIGHBORHOOD REVITALIZATION Copley engages with homeowners to improve and enhance the housing stock and thereby help foster strong and prosperous neighborhoods. Residents are encouraged to utilized the Property Maintenance Code and Keep Copley Beautiful initiatives to help protect and restore our neighborhoods.
STRATEGIC LAND PLANNING & ZONING A great deal of attention has been given to strategic planning initiatives as this becomes the foundation for an equitable and desirous community. Zoning Permits and Resolutions are instrumental in sound land planning. Additionally, Copley supports a Comprehensive Land Use Plan which guides the Township on strategic land use decisions.
In 2012, local small business leaders decided that Copley Township, a traditional farming community, deserved a weekly farmers market of its own to bring the community together near the historic center of the township. These leaders worked to create the Copley Creekside Farmers Market, and that market continues to bring the community together today to support local farms and small businesses. Many special events happening throughout the season can be found on their website, http://copleyfarmmarket.com/.
