Village Green Swimming Pool Modification

An ordinance has been proposed to modify the RESIDENTIAL RESTRICTIONS AND REQUIREMENTS FOR THE VILLAGE GREEN PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT (PUD) pertaining to swimming pools and fencing around pools.  The proposed changes are as follows:

1)  Only lots greater than one-half acre (21,780 square feet) are permitted an in-ground pool.

2)  The in-ground pool must be located in the rear yard and must be located no closer than ten feet (10') from any property line.  The pump and filter must be located no closer than twenty feet (20') from any property line.

3)  The in-ground pool must be surrounded with fencing at least forty-eight inches (48") in height with opacity no greater than fifty percent (50%) and must be constructed to prevent unrestricted access to the swimming pool.  Such fences may or may not be split rail fences.

A public hearing has been scheduled for Monday, November 10, 2014 at 7:00 P.M. at the Fairfield Municipal Building, located at 5350 Pleasant Avenue, Fairfield, Ohio  45014.  The Planning Commission will further discuss the proposed modification on Wednesday, November 12 at 6:00 P.M. at the Fairfield Municipal Building before sending their recommendation back to City Council.  All meetings are open to the public.  

Questions and comments may be submitted to the Development Services Department at development or (513) 867-5345.
