Hiram Township

2020 Comprehensive Plan

What is the 2020 Comprehensive Plan?   "The Comprehensive Plan is long range in perspective and provides a guide for how the community should develop in the future and how scarce resources should be managed. It is a blueprint for a future Hiram. The Plan is intended to be a tool to help officials address challenges, opportunities, and carry out the vision of the community. The Plan will help the Village Planning Commission, Council, Township Trustees, Township Zoning Commission, Township Board of Zoning Appeals and College make decisions about land use, development, conservation, infrastructure and financial investments, and economic development issues. The Plan establishes policies adopted by the participating entities for the future development of the communities, so that future growth can occur in a coordinated, unified and sustainable manner that is beneficial to the communities as a whole. It is based upon an understanding of the current physical, economic, and social conditions and trends which affect and shape the development of Hiram Township and Village, projections of future needs, analysis of alternative 20 year build out scenarios, and incorporated the specified desires and directions of residents, members of the Comprehensive Plan Committee and public officials who have indicated what is appropriate for the communities."
