The Department of Community and Economic Development is tasked with key focus areas which include:
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Copley strives to foster sound economic development objectives which facilitate investment, through the Community Improvement Corporation, a strategic Business Expansion Retention Plan, and well-placed Infrastructure.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT Copley believes that engaging with our residents will foster greater community pride and collective unity. The Comprehensive Neighborhood Master Plan, public iDEA Space, and community Arbor Day help facilitate engagement in the Township.
ENHANCED PUBLIC & GREEN SPACE Copley actively pursues opportunities that increase the availability and convenience of access to public green space. The Copley Canopy, Little Farms Active Recreation Plan, and Trails & Greenways are tools that help support the expansion and care of our public and green space throughout the Township.
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 utilize the Property Maintenance Code and Keep Copley Beautiful initiatives to help protect and restore our neighborhoods.
Approximately 83% of the land in Copley Township has been identified as environmentally sensitive. This land is constrained by floodplains, Riparians, and/or wetlands. The community works to embrace the preservation of sensitive land while balancing growth and development.
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.
