Go North Olmsted was an opportunity for citizens and other stakeholders to help chart the future direction of the city through the creation of the 2015 Master Plan. The plan encompasses many aspects of community life including development, housing, environment, economic development, transportation, and more. The plan serves as a key policy guide for decision-making by City Council and the Planning and Design Commission as they assess the location, character, and extent of proposed public and private development.
Communities are constantly changing and North Olmsted is no exception. Being proactive and planning for the future is the best way to ensure long-term success and increased competitiveness.
To ensure Go North Olmsted was open, inclusive and transparent, a robust public engagement process was designed. All who cared about the future of North Olmsted were invited to participate throughout the 12-month planning process. The input gathered provided the framework for the plan’s vision and five main topic areas.
The North Olmsted community aspires to be… a more attractive place to live, visit and invest.
Top community priorities include creating a distinctive town center, improving recreational assets, managing storm water, promoting small business development, and enforcing property maintenance.
The final Master Plan was adopted by North Olmsted City Council on March 3, 2015. The plan set forth an ambitious agenda, one that will need focused attention to successfully implement over the next ten years. To that end, copies of the plan document were distributed to elected officials, board and commission members and other key staff so it can serve as a day-to-day guide for decision making.
