Zoning

The Village of Golf Manor Zoning Ordinance was enacted to promote the health, safety, comfort ,and general welfare of the community; to conserve and protect property and property values; to secure the most appropriate use of land; and to facilitate adequate but economical provision of public improvements.
Zoning enforcement provides for the administration and enforcement of the zoning ordinances. Provisions are included for penalties for its violation, all in accordance with the provisions of the Ohio Revised Code, or under common law rulings.
The first step in any building project conducted in the Village is the issusance of a “Zoning Certificate.” The application to receive an “approved” Zoning Certificate is submitted to the Village’s Building Code Official along with detailed drawings of the intended project and the appropriate application fee.
The Building Code Official will determine if the project adheres to the requirements of the Building Code or other Ordinances and will issue an “approved” Zoning Certificate which is then presented to Hamilton County Building & Planning to obtain and necessary permits to move forward with a project.
If the application is denied or “not approved,” the applicant may not move forward with the intended project. However, the applicant does have the ability to request a variance or zoning change through appealing to the board of planning & zoning, also known as the Planning Commission. This request is faciltated by presenting the denied Zoning Certificate application, along with the detailed plans and the appropriate fee to appear before the Planning Commission, to the Village Administrator. The matter will be scheduled to be heard at the next scheduled Planning Commission meeting, provided there is sufficient time to notify property owners within 500 ft. of the project of the scheduled Planning Commission meeting. Thise property owners will be permitted to weigh-in on the appropriateness of your project and may speak either for or against it. The Village Administrator will be able to advise of the scheduling and other details of the meeting.
