Andrew C. Sigmon
This report examines the zoning laws of municipal jurisdictions within Montgomery County, Ohio, to determine whether the municipal zoning laws of jurisdictions within Montgomery County poses obstacles to the establishment of Supported Living Homes. A separate review of each juristiction is attached to the report.
The Miami Valley Fair Housing Center (MVFHC), Miami Valley In-Ovations (MVIO), and the Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disability Services (MCDDS) collaborated over a period of approximately 20 months and diverted resources from other programming to complete the study because of difficulties that MVIO encountered as it tried to establish Supported Living arrangements for people with disabilities throughout Montgomery County.
MVIO’s mission is to provide lifetime affordable housing to people with disabilities in Montgomery and surrounding counties, with an emphasis on serving residents with developmental disabilities.
