Planning & Zoning

One of the fastest growing communities in the State of Ohio and the second fastest growing community in Central Ohio, Pickerington continues to maintain high standards for development and a desirable quality of life for residents and businesses. From the charming Olde Pickerington Village, to the commercial corridor along State Route 256, the city offers an aesthetically appealing natural landscape that earned it the name: "Violet Capital of Ohio."
