Village of Urbancrest Community Plan
About the plan
This project began in May 2019 and completed August 2021. Click here to view the draft Urbancrest Community Plan.
Community residents, Village officials and Franklin County planners developed a Community Plan for the Village of Urbancrest. Franklin County's role was to facilitate the planning process, collect input and feedback through the process, and report findings and recommendations back to the community, the Working Committee, and Village officials. The plan will now move on to the Urbancrest Village Council for their adoption.
Planning area boundaries
The planning area includes all land in the Village of Urbancrest.

This project addresses land use, housing, transportation, economic development and other planning issues facing the Village for the next 10-20 years.
It is a consensus-based process using a working committee and public meetings to reach a consensus and a final plan document.
Before being finalized, the plan will go through the Village's review and adoption process.
We will document our progress through the year-long planning process. See how the plan takes shape by viewing the Planning process documents
