Summit Lake Neighborhood

Land Use Plan 
Our Summit Lake was a community planning process held in 2021 to create a shared vision for land within the Summit Lake neighborhood. By working together, local residents and The City of Akron are working to transform the vision into reality.

Form-Based Zoning
Rezoning the neighborhood is an important step towards making the Land Use Plan a reality. 
To address these inconsistencies and encourage development that is complementary to the neighborhood, a portion of the neighborhood has been rezoned using the City’s recently adopted Form-Based Zoning Code. The rezoning allows for the development of new businesses and the construction of housing types at a range of price points. 
A community meeting was held on January 11, 2024 to discuss the form-based zoning code with neighborhood residents. The new zoning was approved by Akron City Council on March 18, 2024.
