Hubbard Township Contracts for Comprehensive Plan

April 29, 2015

WARREN, Ohio – The Trumbull County Planning Commission will work with Hubbard Township to update the township’s comprehensive plan. The planning commission created Hubbard’s last comprehensive plan in 2013.

The planning commission will kick off the planning process by updating the inventory of data. The comprehensive plan update is scheduled to be completed in April 2017.

“The township has undergone many changes since the adoption of the previous plan including the cancellation of the Hubbard Arterial project and the addition of several sewer projects,” said Trish Nuskievicz, planning commission executive director, who worked on Hubbard’s 2003 plan. “Because of these changes, it is time to re-group and update the comprehensive plan, which is the township’s blueprint for future growth and provides the legal basis for zoning.”

A comprehensive plan includes maps, charts and text that analyze existing trends and conditions of growth to make recommendations for the general development of a community, Nuskievicz explained.

The planning commission recently completed comprehensive plans for Bristol, Hartford and Kinsman townships as well as the village of Newton Falls. The commission is in the final stages of updating Champion Township’s comprehensive plan and is  under contract with Braceville and Farmington townships and the city of Girard.
