coyoteWhile the City of Montgomery will investigate aggressive coyotes or any animal that has attacked humans or other animals, the City does not hunt or trap coyotes. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is responsible for wild animals in Ohio and referrals are made to them where coyotes become a nuisance or a danger to the public. For more information please visit the Ohio Department of Natural Resources website.

What to do about coyotes

If you spot a coyote in your neighborhood, relax: Most coyotes avoid people. “Seeing a coyote out during the day is not a cause for alarm, especially in the spring and summer when they’re looking for food for their pups,” says Lynsey White Dasher, HSUS director of humane wildlife conflict resolution.

If a coyote displays no fear of people, he’s probably been fed. You can instill fear by raising your arms and yelling to drive him away. This is called hazing. Unlike trapping, which sometimes catches pets or other wildlife but rarely the coyotes who are causing problems, hazing works.

Coyotes may mistake small, unattended pets as prey or attack large dogs they view as threats to territory or dens. To keep your animals safe, take two simple steps:

  1. Watch your pets. Keep cats indoors, and never leave small dogs outside unsupervised or let any dog out of your yard off leash.
  2. Secure food sources. Store garbage in wildlife-proof containers and feed pets indoors.

For more information, please visit http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/coyotes/tips/solving-problems-with-coyotes.html

Urban Coyote Research Project

The Urban Coyote Research Project has been taking place in Chicago, IL for several years and they have gathered a significant amount of information about coyotes in urban settings. Visit their website to learn about their project and how people and coyotes can coexist in a safe manner.

The Arts Commission sponsors a number of events throughout the year.  Check our our Events Calendar or the City newsletter for information on these events:

  • Improv at the Uni
  • Photo Contest
  • Shakespeare in the Park
  • July 3 Patriotic Concert
  • Live at the Uni Concert Series

The Montgomery Diversity and Inclusion Commission is lead by Montgomery residents and believes the infusion of diverse cultures, faiths, and customs enriches social and civic life and is a positive development for the community.

Certain home occupations and home offices are permitted by the Montgomery  Zoning Code.  There are restrictions that apply and certain businesses are prohibited as in-home occupations.  To apply for a home occupation with the City, please use the home occupation use permit.  The regulations that govern home occupations follow:

These regulations control the establishment and operation of home occupations per Section 151.1010 of the Montgomery Zoning Code.  The intent of these regulations is to control the nonresidential use of a residential dwelling unit so that the nonresidential use is limited to an accessory use and shall not in any way adversely affect the uses permitted in the residential district of which they are a part.  Compliance with these regulations should result in all home occupations being located and conducted in such a manner that their existence is not detectable in any manner from the outside of the dwelling unit.

  1. Not more than one person other than a person residing on the premises shall be employed in a home occupation.
  2. A home occupation shall occupy no more than 25% of the floor area of the dwelling and shall be clearly incidental and secondary in importance to the use of the dwelling for dwelling purposes.
  3. Any merchandise that is sold from the premises shall be produced on the premises.
  4. The business activity, including the storage of equipment, supplies or any apparatus used in the home occupation shall be conducted entirely within the dwelling unit and no use of a garage, an accessory building or an outdoor area shall be permitted.
  5. There shall not be any change in the outside appearance of the building or premises, or other visible exterior change related to the home occupation. Structural modifications such as a separate business entrance, colors, materials, or the construction of accessory structures not currently permitted are prohibited.
  6. No equipment or process shall be permitted or used in such home occupation that creates a nuisance by reason of generating any noise, vibration, glare, fumes, odors, or electrical interference, or which is determined unsafe.
  7. No signs shall be permitted on the lot that designates employment or home occupations.
  8. Traffic:
    • Employee parking shall be located off the street with the applicable front, side and rear yard requirements maintained.
    • The conduct of a home occupation shall not reduce or render unusable areas provided for required off-street parking areas for the dwelling unit.
    • Traffic generated by a home occupation shall not exceed the average daily volume normally expected for a residence in a residential neighborhood, which for the purpose of this § equals up to 10 round trips per day.
    • Deliveries for the business are limited to an average of once per day. Delivery by a truck with more than two axles is prohibited.

All persons wishing to conduct a home occupation shall apply for home occupation use permit, as required in Chapter 150.12 and shall register with the City of Montgomery Tax Department.

Garage sales are permitted, but for no more than three days in a row and no more than four times per year at any one location. No permit is required for garage sale signs. Please do not post signs on utility poles or in the public right-of-way. For more information, call the Montgomery Community Development Department at 513-792-8309.

Montgomery contains a significant amount of green space and wildlife, including deer. While sympathizing with residents over problems associated with the deer population, Montgomery City Council has adopted a policy to not utilize a “controlled’ kill program. While a “controlled kill” approach may be viable in large regional parks and communities such as Indian Hill, it is not viable in suburban neighborhoods like those found in Montgomery from a public safety standpoint. City Council elected to encourage citizens to utilize alternative measures for controlling deer including the use of chemical and mechanical repellents and naturally repelling vegetation, and to discourage the use of some plants and vegetation that encourage deer feeding. We annually include an article and information in our monthly Bulletin on the subject, but there is also information available through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Division offering suggestions on “deer proofing” your property through landscaping and other means.

Residents are also encouraged to not feed wildlife, as this attracts animals to residential areas and is also not good for the animals themselves.

Sycamore Community Schools is consistently rank as a top public school district in Ohio. For more information, visit the Sycamore Community Schools webpage.

Starting in January, 2003, the City of Blue Ash and the City of Montgomery agreed to join together in the sponsorship of the Blue Ash/Montgomery Symphony Orchestra (BAMSO). Led by Maestro Michael Chertock, the BAMSO is a professional orchestra founded in 1987 as the Blue Ash Symphony Orchestra and recently renamed to commend the partnership.

The driving effort that brought about the BAMSO merger was a need to bring back a more culturally based vein of programming available to the public and the opportunity to link Montgomery and Blue Ash communities in the charge. The professional talent and quality performances presented by the orchestra is an exciting opportunity for area fans of classical music to enjoy and also serves to introduce others to the variety of art forms that music can be a part of. The July 3rd Concert, held in Montgomery Park, is ideal for neighborhood groups, family get-togethers and local organizations to make an evening out of the entertainment and food provided in this lovely park setting.

BAMSO encourages individual citizens of the Blue Ash and Montgomery communities to support its program by joining the Orchestra Guild, the Governing Board or through monetary donations to the Friends of the Symphony. For more information, please call BAMSO, at 513-549-2197.

The City of Montgomery has been a proud Tree City Award recipient for well over twenty years straight, and a Tree City USA Growth Award  for its ongoing commitment and action focused on environmental stewardship through, care of public trees in the City’s urban forest.  These awards continue the recognition received during 2009 when the Arbor Day Foundation recognized Montgomery as a “Sterling” Tree City USA, which at the time recognized Montgomery as just the sixth community in Ohio to earn this prestigious honor. 

The city maintains an archive of helpful articles written by our staff arborist, called Terry’s Tree Tips.  If you would like to browse these articles, view  Terry’s Tree Tips   You can also contact a  certified arborist by visiting the Ohio Department of Agriculture website at agri.ohio.gov.

The City of Montgomery offers several commemorative programs – trees, benches and bricks. Details on these programs can be found on the City’s Commemorative Donations Page.

This program is filled for 2021, please submit requests starting in January of 2022, thanks!

As part of its efforts to maintain both the City’s Tree City status and the many benefits provided by a healthy urban forest, the City of Montgomery offers the Street Tree Program to provide a street tree to property owners for a $100 co-pay.  The co-pay covers a portion of the cost of the tree and the labor for planting it in the public right-of-way.

Street Tree applications will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis. When the annual Street Tree Program budget has been exhausted, applications will be held for future consideration.

Each property owner may request one street tree per year; if the property frontage permits planting of more than one street tree, a second tree may be requested and may be approved subject to the annual Street Tree Program budget and demand for the program by other residents.

All decisions regarding the Street Tree Program are at the discretion of the Public Works Director or his designee. This may include but is not limited to the location for planting, species, size, timing of planting, and replacement of trees.

Any further questions, contact Terry Willenbrink at [email protected] or 513-792-8320.

The City of Montgomery has a comprehensive network of sidewalks throughout the community creating a pedestrian link to our parks and neighborhoods. Sidewalks are an integral part in providing a pedestrian- friendly residential community.  Distance markers, every 1/10 of a mile, are embedded in the primary corridor sidewalks to assist pedestrians and runners in monitoring the distance they have traveled.  The City will inspect and provide structural maintenance on all public sidewalks including replacement of cracked blocks, pavers, etc. Residents are responsible for all routine maintenance including cleaning, snow removal and weed control.

 

The public-right-of-way is a strip of land dedicated for use by the City, in addition to the roadway, that is usually between the roadway edge and the sidewalk or utility poles. Generally it is land approximately 12’ from the edge of the roadway, depending on what part of the City you are located. For more information about  your right-of-way, call our construction compliance officer at 513-792-8322.

Any construction or excavation work taking place in the public right-of-way requires a right-of-way excavation permit.  This includes: Street openings, curb cuts, and driveway apron replacements as well as planting or removing trees.  Utilities are generally located within the public right-of-way and residents are not permitted to erect signs or structures or dig in the area without first obtaining review and approval by the City and by calling Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS) at 800-362-2764.

For more information, visit the City Permits Page or call Montgomery City Hall at 513-891-2424.

What are setbacks?

Setbacks refer to the distance that must be maintained between any improvement project and property lines.  Setback requirements vary for different types of projects.  For new houses, or additions to an existing house, the following setbacks would apply:

Location Residence A zones Residence B zones
Front yard setback 50′ 50′
Side yard setback 15′ from each side 12′ from each side
Rear yard setback 35′ 30′

There are other zones in the City of Montgomery, but Residence A and B make up the majority of residential areas in the city.  To see what zone you live in, check the Zoning Map.

Other types of structures also have setback requirements.  Sheds must maintain a minimum setback of five feet from the rear and side property lines and may only be constructed in the side or rear yard.  Swimming pools (including the decking) have a 10 foot setback to the side and rear property line.  Doghouses, rabbit hutches, chicken coops and bee hives have a 15 foot setback from the side and rear property lines.  Driveways have a 5 foot setback from the side property line.  If you are considering any type of construction on your property, it’s a good idea to call the Community Development Department to make sure it will be in compliance with the zoning code.
