Comprehensive Plan Update: 2018
What is the Comprehensive Plan?

The city is undertaking an update to the 1974 Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a document that describes the history, current condition, and future vision for the community. It serves as a guide for future growth and development while promoting the health, safety and general welfare of the people.

The Comprehensive Plan should reflect the ideas and opinions of our residents and businesses. The Planning Board held a 6-week online survey from April to May where we received over 150 responses.  The Board will evaluate the survey results and hold meetings open to the public to gather more input to continue to mold and form the new Comprehensive Plan.

What has happened so far?

The Planning Board conducted a Walkable Community Workshop in April of 2017, an online survey in the Spring of 2018 and a Community Vision meeting on November 5, 2018. Each of these were geared toward gathering public input in order to form our updated plan.

What are the Next Steps?

Once all of the community input is compiled, a draft of the plan will be presented to the Planning Board for approval. Once approved, it will go to City Council for final approval and adoption.  After the plan is approved, it will be used for future planning decisions.

Downtown Bellbrook Walkable Community Workshop Report: 2017

The Greene County Regional Planning Commission has released the Downtown Bellbrook Walkable Community Workshop report.  The workshop was held on April 12 where the city hosted over 40 residents and community leaders.  The workshop was a combined effort between the Greene County Regional Planning Commission, the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission, and the City of Bellbrook.

The discussion focused on exploring elements of the downtown area that we can build on to create a more pedestrian friendly, walkable environment.  Attendees worked in groups to facilitate discussion and toured various parts of downtown.

The results of the workshop and this report will be incorporated into the city's comprehensive plan update.  The comprehensive plan update will occur over the next year and the city will provide more information as the process proceedes.
