Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign

Does the City of Loveland Ohio have rules regarding signage? What committee is responsible for this oversight? According to the city charter the Planning & Zoning Commission is responsible for the planning and regulations covering the municipality, more specifically it is their responsibility to enforce the provisions of the zoning code and interpret the meaning and applications of its provisions.

So why are so many signs that are not in conformance with the zoning regulations in the downtown historic district and Loveland Madeira Rd being approved by the members of the planning and zoning commission? How do all these non-conforming signs affect the decision making of the master planning committee, historical committee and the overall long term look of the city.

Master Plan - Public Meeting

On Monday, January 14, 2019 the City of Loveland held a public meeting to discuss the master plan for the city. The consulting firm - Yard & Co. - assigned the topics for the public to discuss. They were 1) A city that is aging 2) A city that moves 3) A hospitality and tourism destination 4) A city that is growing

Click here to listen to our newest podcast - The Magic of Master Planning - where we discuss the public meeting and seek to answer some of the following questions:

  • Was the format for the meeting what the public was expecting?

  • Were the topics what the public wanted to talk about?

  • Was the voice of the public heard at this meeting?

  • Is this a community driven plan or a consultant driven plan?

  • Does this format lead to solid solutions?

During the podcast we use an analogy regarding the role and processes of the consulting firm. One of the key parts of a magic trick is distraction. The magician talks during his routine so you will focus on their face not their hands. We heard a lot of talking during the planning meeting but what are the hands doing? Words are only one part of the process, are we watching their hands? Do we know what action is really going on? Stay tuned because Eye On Loveland is watching the hands.

The City of Loveland begins the year of 2019 with their first public outreach, the topic - Master Plan, more specifically, downtown Loveland.

Eye on Loveland has previously discussed that the majority of city council, led by Mayor Kathy Bailey, Vice-Mayor Rob Weisgerber, Ted Phelps, Tim Butler, Neil Oury and Kent Blair, voted in 2018 to spend $128K of taxpayer money on another comprehensive plan ( the city has paid for at least 9 other plans and updates in the past.)

Our newest podcast - Click here - Master Plan 2019 - discusses not only the plan but also the topic of community engagement that was promised by this majority in 2018 and why or why not those promises were fulfilled. What will this new outreach for public opinion regarding downtown development look like? How will the community be involved in this decision making? Join us, won’t you?

There will be a public meeting to discuss downtown planning on Monday, January 14, 2019 at the Loveland stage company, 6pm. Loveland is Changing - Be A Part Of It. Let your Voice Be Heard.
