Amberley Green Development Update
In April, Council approved a development agreement with The Walnut Group for a 10-month period to explore the viability of development of the property in accordance with a concept plan that included various land uses.
The Village was given notice by the Walnut Group on June 24 that it is withdrawing from the Amberley Green project. Village Council is considering the next steps to take in development of the site.
Give Us Your Opinion
The Village is continuing to collect resident input as to the residents’ preference to watch council meetings playback on Time Warner Cable. It costs approximately $22,000 annually for the Village to have video recordings of the council meetings produced and made available on Time Warner Cable. As the Village considers this cost, please let us know what you think. Email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Don’t forget to apply for a zoning permit for work you intend to do before work commences. Permits from the Village are free and usually have a 7-10 day turn around after submission. Sheds, fences, new construction, pools (above and in-ground) all need permits. In kind replacements such as: shingles, windows, and siding do not require a zoning permit – check with Hamilton County regarding a building permit, though. If you’re not sure whether or not your project needs a permit, call the administration offices at 531-8675 and just ask! Visit amberleyvillage.org for submission guidelines.
