In late 2017, the City of Sidney adopted the 2017 Comprehensive Plan as its vision for how the city should grow and develop over the next 10 to 20 years.
The Plan identifies ten themes and initiatives for the city's growth:
Aggressive Property Maintenance Enforcement
“Activate” the Riverfront
Promote Pedestrian Connectivity
Improve Public and Private Partnerships
Beautify the Corridors
Improve the Gateways
Heighten Community Planning Resources
Ensure Effective Community Services to Support Growth and Revitalization
The Plan also includes a Future Land Use Plan, which focuses on 18 Policy Areas
The Plan is the basis for a new modern Sidney Code.
YOUR ZONING CODE. YOUR FUTURE.
About the Project:
In late 2019, the City engaged Ohio-based city planner and lawyer Sean S. Suder to work with the City to modernize the Sidney Code.
The project is scheduled to be completed in 12-14 months.
A Working Committee has been formed to provide technical input into the coding process. The committee will meet regularly during the project.
The Planning Commission and City Council will be updated regularly throughout the project. To take effect, the new code will require adoption by the City Council.
Engaged citizens will have numerous opportunities to be involved in the coding process. If you are interested in receiving invitations or notice of upcoming Sidney Code information sessions or workshops, please reach out.
