Address Assignment | Land Use Plan Services | Subdivision Administration Services | Zoning Services
The Development Services section of the RPC is primarily responsible for land use planning, zoning,
subdivision review, and addressing services for the unincorporated territories of Hamilton County. This section is charged with the
task of overseeing the implementation of adopted resolutions, rules, and procedures relative to the physical development of the
unincorporated territory of Hamilton County.
In order to accomplish these responsibilities, the Development Services section must facilitate the coordinated review of proposed
developments through effective and efficient communication with a multitude of stakeholders, including developers, engineers,
architects, attorneys, property owners, development review agencies, elected officials, and the general public.
Services section strives to balance the common good with the rights of private property owners while assuring compliance with
established development standards. This effort requires assessment of compliance with various sets of codes and regulations in an
effort to ensure quality development practices that enhance the character and livability of the community. Therefore, the Development
Services section must gather information, prepare reports, and make presentations on all projects requiring
development review. The four major focus areas that generally require such review are
Land Use Plan Services,
Subdivision Administration Services,
and Address Assignment.
In addition to these services, the Development Services section periodically enters into contractual agreements with townships and
municipalities (inside and outside Hamilton County) to perform specific development review related tasks. These tasks may include
preparation of comprehensive plans, land use plans, review of specific site plans, preparation of zoning code text amendments,
preparation of new zoning codes, or other tasks associated with the review or regulation of proposed development projects.
