UNION TOWN CENTER
The City of Union recently conducted a public survey asking our community questions about parks, green space, and wishes for the new Town Center.
Responses: 2023 Survey Summary
Formation of a Park Advisory Committee
The purpose of the City of Union Park Advisory Committee is to provide input and direction to the Commission specific to the design and development of the new Union Town Center. The committee will participate in meetings, workshops, and community outreach in partnership with City Staff, lead Commissioner and design engineers. The Park Advisory Committee will consist of 4 -8 (four to eight) City of Union residents, each representing a different section/neighborhood within the city limits. (November 2023)
Originally, the Union Town Center was a key development area identified in the 2000 Union Town Plan which was formally adopted by the Boone County Planning Commission in May 2000. The zoned Union Town Center refers to a 90-acre area located at the intersection of Mt. Zion Road and U.S. 42 in Union, Kentucky. It consists of Union’s Old Business District along Old Union Road and future new business development at U.S. 42 and Mt. Zion Road. View the Original Town Plan 2000.
On June 27, 2022, the City of Union purchased 22 acres located between US Route 42 and Old Union Road destined to be the site of the long-awaited Town Center. Discussions for the future Town Center include a new City Building, a large open park area, retail for smaller businesses, housing options, and walking trails around the new development. Updates will be shared to this page as available.
