Department Core Focus Area: Enhanced Public & Green Space
Copley Township is dedicated to the preservation of the tree canopy found in our area. The Department of Community and Economic Development is committed to this mission through the engagement of tree preservation activities found in residential and commercial development.
The Department & Township have incorporated the following activities in their commitment to the Copley Tree Canopy including:
Adoption of Tree Preservation Ageements
Adoption of Tree Resolutions for new development
Adoption of Tree Preservation Regulations & Landscaping Requirements for new development
Since the adoption of tree preservation agreements and regulations in 2012, Copley Township has preserved over 25 acres of mature woodlands. In addition, the agreements and regulations have resulted in the planting of over 1,325 trees specifically chosen to help re-establish the canopy impacted by deforestation and development in our community.
Copley businesses are invited to engage & innovate in our new iDEA SPACE. The SPACE is available for small group meetings on the 3rd Friday of each month from 8:30 am-11:30 am.
Collaborate on topics such as business expansion, business development, business-township projects and more! Experts, including the Township Administrator, Community & Economic Development Director and other Township officials may be available to assist with your meeting upon request.

Project Building Blocks, supported by The Department of Community & Economic Development, is dedicated to the enhancement and beautification of our community through our core focus area of Neighborhood Revitalization.
