Trumbull Planning Commission on 11th Plan Update

May 17, 2017

WARREN, Ohio – The Trumbull County Planning Commission has completed eight comprehensive plans for communities since 2014 and is on track to begin its 11th later this year, an update of the county’s 1960 comprehensive plan.

“I started working at the planning commission in 1996 and have worked on about two dozen plans, so it feels great to complete nearly 50% of that total in under four years. We are on a roll,” said Trish Nuskievicz, the commission’s executive director, in a release. “Planning for the needs of a community, instead of reacting to them, can eliminate chronic problems, save tax dollars, and reduce duplication of services.”

Over the past three years, the agency has completed plans for Hartford, Bristol, Kinsman, Braceville, Champion, Farmington and Hubbard townships and the village of Newton Falls, Nuskievicz said.

The commission is in the final stages of updating the comprehensive plans for Warren and Girard, as well as reviewing and making recommendations on zoning ordinances for both, she noted.

“By working with the planning commission, our communities have the opportunity to work with a talented group of professionals while saving taxpayer dollars by utilizing an agency that offers such a wide range of consolidated services,” said Trumbull County Commissioner Mauro Cantalamessa.
