Comprehensive plans are required for each community in Ohio and are used to steer the future direction of growth and development. They are used by the courts when disputes to development are counter to the vision of the community. Updated periodically, the first in 1979 then again in 1984, 1996 and 2005, they provide for resident input of their likes and dislikes as well as what they consider is important in the community in which they choose to reside.
The Leroy Township Comprehensive Plan is a major planning effort to guide the community toward what it will be like in future as a place to live, work, and invest. It is being developed through an open, participatory process driven by four broad-reaching questions:
- Where are we now?
- Where are we going?
- Where do we want to be?
- How do we get there?
The comprehensive plan will identify a vision and broadly address the elements that build a community including transportation, housing, open space and natural resources, sense of place, government services, the impacts of new developments and more.

Comprehensive Plan update Vision Statement:
“The residents of Leroy Township desire a sense of community with small town values while preserving our rural atmosphere, providing an alternative to other communities in Lake County. By updating our Comprehensive Plan, the community will help to implement strategies to manage efficient development of the Township while supporting required Township services and those additional services, activities and amenities that contribute to a rural way of life.”
