    her he bolted and ran into a second male that was also entering the victim’s

                                    REPORT TO THE UNION TOWNSHIP BOARD OF TRUSTEES
                                                           JULY 2009 PLANNING & ZONING SUMMARY REPORT
                                                                                         JULY 23, 2009




PERMIT ACTIVITY
July has resulted in a substantial lull in single family residential permit activity. Other than fences (always
in high demand in the summer months), even our homeowner projects have lessened throughout the
month. Much time is consumed on the telephone, discussing project requirements relative to pending or
imminent projects. However, no substantial development has materialized to date.

PROJECT FORECAST
A new section of Wetherby Farms has been recently accepted by the County Board of Commissioners.
Last week, our contacts at M/I Homes told us that once the platting and identification process has been
completed by the Tax Map Office, fourteen new homes will be submitted for zoning permits. The
application for the Eastgate Crossings Kroger Fuel Center was finally received and approved, fifteen
months after its Overlay approval was granted, and is expected to commence in September. Select
Strategies has submitted its permit application for Phase II at the Union Township Retail Center at the
intersection of Beechwood Road and SR 32 and is currently in the review process.

CASES FOR SPECIAL REVIEW
The Zoning Commission received no applications for July or for August. The Board of Zoning Appeals
will hear one application for variance regarding an increase in the maximum area of an accessory structure
for a homeowner at 3932 Fulton Grove Road at their August 6th meeting. The Law Director is defending
an appeal to the Clermont County Court of Common Pleas that the Board of Zoning Appeals was in error
in their findings on Case 4-09-A concerning the conditional use and variances for residential property
owned by the Greater Cincinnati Hindu Society on Klatte Road on June 4, 2009.

No zoning matters will be before the Board of Trustees on July 28, 2009. M/I Homes will submit a
request for R-4 Major Amendment to alter the design within the interior of Wetherby Farms and Schneller
Heating and Cooling will present an Overlay Request regarding an unusual sign proposal for their location
off K of C Drive in Withamsville, to be presented at the August 11th regular meeting.

VIOLATIONS AND ENFORCEMENTS
Both in the office and on the road, staff time has been dominated by complaints. Staffs takes particular
time and care to explain the complaint process and enforcement procedures, so that our citizens have a
clearer understanding of how the law works, whether they are the complainant or the offender.

The department, with the assistance of Captain Gerome of the UTFD, has initiated action regarding two
particularly egregious properties and a measure of success has been enjoyed on both. At 532 Old State
Route 74, corrections have begun on unsafe conditions that include the removal of a deteriorating awning
and unsafe electrical wiring on the exterior of the structure. Additional corrections regarding zoning
violations are anticipated. At 815 Ohio Pike efforts have proven rewarding! The property owner has
cleared brush and debris from the front of the lot, secured the dilapidated structure from unlawful entry,
and obtained a demolition permit from Clermont County Permit Central. The owner plans to raze the
structure in September and with it will go the myriad complaints generated by a long time eyesore.
                                                                                          JULY, 2009 PLANNING & ZONING SUMMARY

INSPECTION ACTIVITY
Permit inspections are current through the end of July, although the majority of the inspector’s time has
been spent in response to ongoing and new complaints regarding potential nuisances and violations.

            Keeping Union Township Safe & Beautiful

Cemetery Division:


    Overall maintenance of the cemetery continues including daily
    mowing, trimming, brush removal and the removal of weeds from the
    landscape beds. Also, two-thirds of the fence line has been cleared of
    brush and hanging tree limbs.

    Unsightly brush was removed from the landscape bed on the south
    side of the large garage. Fresh, dyed, black mulch was then applied to
    this area. In addition, fresh mulch was applied to the corner landscape
    area in Section 6 and the office landscape beds.

    A total of 13 foundation orders were filled. In addition, work orders
    were filled including grave site restoration and leveling markers.

    The chapel was thoroughly cleaned, including the back storage area.
    In addition, the carpet was cleaned and the landscape beds were
    weeded.

    Progress was made at the “Pioneer Heritage Memorial Grove” with the
    installation of a plaque. This plaque was awarded to the park from the
    Ohio Department of Natural Resources in 2005. The plaque was
    attached to a post in the vicinity of the restrooms.

    A memorial service was held for Army Spc. Gregory J. Missman on
    Friday, July 17 in the large gazebo. The cemetery was carefully
    maintained especially the area surrounding the gazebo. Fresh dyed
    black mulch was applied to the gazebo landscape beds, as well as the
    Cremation Scattering Garden and trees bordering Section 7. Sixteen
    red, white and blue hanging flower baskets were placed in the gazebo,
    along with flags and yellow ribbons. The parking lot, gazebo, and
    walkway were cleaned.
    From July 9 – July 22, eight burials were performed, two of which were
    performed on Saturday. The burials generated $5,025.00.
    In addition, six new grave sites were purchased, generating
    $2,500.00. Furthermore, one preneed Cremation Scattering
    Garden was purchased generating $500.00.

    Plans for the Lantern Lighting Ceremony continue. Tom Bravard and

A resolution is required by the Board to Declare the Necessity of an Additional Tax to be
levied outside the 10 mill limitation, and to certify to the Auditor said resolution in order to
permit the Board of Trustees to consider the levy of such a tax, and further requesting that
the Clermont County Auditor certify to the Board of Trustees of Union Township, Clermont
County, Ohio the total current tax valuation of Union Township, Clermont County, Ohio, Ohio

required resolutions necessary to place a levy issue on the November general election ballot.
