Fayette County, with a population estimated at 29,030, is undergoing new commercial, retail, industrial, recreational and entertainment growth, as well as residential housing expansion. Centrally located from Columbus, Cincinnati and Dayton, Fayette County is an amazing hub of easy access, having direct access to state Routes 38,41,and 735, U.S Routes 22,35,and 62, Interstate 71, and several other connecting roadways allowing over 2,000 commuters to travel to Fayette County for employment every day from the contiguous counties alone.
Fayette County is home to the “Fayette County Mega site,” the premier Mega-Manufacturing site in the State of Ohio and Midwest Region with 1,500 + acres located at the interstate of I 71 and U.S. Route 35.
Our schools recently built, are excellent and aim to provide world-class education to students. Miami Trace Local School District is rated in the “excellent” category in Ohio. Washington Court City School District with new school buildings, beautiful outdoor facilities, technology and excellent infrastructure continues its tradition of excellence.
The Floodplain Management Office is located within the Fayette County Building and Zoning Departments. The Floodplain Manager is Jay Myers.
The Floodplain Resolution was passed in May of 1995 to participate in the floodplain management. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is a Federal program enabling property owners in "participating communities" to purchase insurance protection against losses from flooding. The insurance is designed to provide an insurance alternative to disaster assistance to meet the escalating costs of repairing damage to building and their contents caused by flood.
If new construction or additions are occuring in the community that require zoning permits, the zoning inspector will make an effort to notify the property owners that they are in violation of the zoning and building codes. If the violation continues, the zoning inspector will issue a zoning violation which will describe the violation and provide the property owners with course of action and spell out their rights.
A Great Place To Do Business
The primary goal of the Fayette County Office of Economic Development is to retain, cultivate, and expand existing trade in our community as well as to seek-out, recruit, and develop new business opportunities for Fayette County.
Acting as a liaison between commerce and government, the mission of the Office of Economic Development is to assist potential business clients with the viewing/selection process of available locations, and at the same time provide information (regarding capital investment, financing, grants, job creation, stimulus programs, and venture capital).
Always call before you dig — It's the Law!
Remember, safe digging means calling . . .
8-1-1 or 1-800-362-2764
. . . before ANY type of landscape or excavation work. Lines have been hit digging, such things as, fence post holes, anchoring supports for decks and swing sets, planting trees, removing tree roots and driving landscaping stakes into the ground. By not calling, you're not only breaking the law, but also risking injury to yourself, your family or work crew and the surrounding community.
