I’M LOOKING FOR…
“We live close to the Veterans’ Park on Glen Este-Withamsville Road. Quite often, I see people using the walking trails and teams playing soccer. I enjoy walking there myself! I also see many children using the playground. The park is always well-maintained.
“It’s not uncommon for organizations to have functions at the park, also. It is a great area for the community to connect.”
– Kim Shepler, 29 year resident
Carved from the rolling hills of west-central Clermont County in 1811, and located at the convergence of the Ohio State Route 32 Corridor and Interstate 275, Union Township retains is place as the center for population and commerce growth in Clermont County and the eastern half of the Greater Cincinnati Metropolitan area. As of 2010, U.S. Census figures report the population of this 9th largest township in the state as 46,416, an increase of more than 9% over 2000 census population statistics. With a mean (average) household income of $76,382, an aggregate taxable valuation of $1,016,292,540, and the largest school district in the county, Union Township continues to be one of the most livable communities in the Midwest. In addition to a continued pattern of strong, consistent and diverse residential growth and development, Union Township has emerged as a major employment center on the eastern edge of Cincinnati with the continued development and success of the Ivy Pointe Commerce Park, and the Eastgate Pavilion, Eastgate Crossing and Eastgate South shopping areas. Additionally, Union Township continues to serve as the economic engine for Clermont County, demonstrated by the continuing patterns of redevelopment and investment within the State Route 32 and State Route 125 retail corridors.
Boasting easy access to Downtown Cincinnati and the Greater Cincinnati/Northern KY International Airport through convenient, robust Interstate highway and regional transportation networks, Union Township continues to be among the leaders in the region with regard to job creation and new investment because of the welcoming, business-friendly environment fostered by the Board of Trustees. Fully accredited in Police, Fire, Emergency Communications, and Public Works, and home to a first-class park system and nationally recognized Mt. Moriah Cemetery, Union Township excels at providing outstanding service to the nearly 50,000 residents and thousands of employees and businesses that reside here today. Booming residential and commercial development require an infrastructure that is second to none. Through sound and conservative fiscal practice, the Union Township Board of Trustees and Fiscal Officer manage a general fund that shows steady growth each year.
Prospering in economic growth, residential development, and overall livability, Union Township continues to lead development on the east side of greater Cincinnati and in Clermont County, Ohio.
