The Board of Zoning Appeals of Sagamore Hills Township will hold a Public Hearing at
Sagamore Hills Township, 11551 Valley View Road, Sagamore Hills, Ohio 44067, on
Wednesday February 21, 2024, at 7:00 p.m. for the following:

New Aurora Health (hereinafter “New Aurora”) is appealing the Zoning Inspector’s January 12,
2024, denial of a Certificate of Zoning Compliance/Occupancy Permit for 997 W. Aurora
Road, Sagamore Hills, Ohio 44067.

997 W. Aurora Road is a 69,995 sq. ft. two-story building zoned commercial with a conditional
use permitted granted in 1999 to the previous owners to construct and operate an assisted living
facility containing a 109-bed residential facility. The previous facility closed in 2021. New
Aurora has entered into a lease for the entire facility and states that their proposed use is a
“change of occupant” to operate a “MEDICAL OFFICE/MENTAL HEALTH & SUBSTANCE
ABUSE TREATMENT CENTER.” New Aurora states their use is permitted under the
Sagamore Hills Township Zoning Resolution Section 5.2(A)(1 1) which permits a “professional
office such as medical, dental, legal, engineering, realtor, accounting and such.” The Zoning
Inspector denied the application because the use is not permitted. New Aurora appeals pursuant
to Ohio Revised Code Section 519.14(A) arguing that the denial was made in error.

The application, all materials submitted, and the denial are available for examination at
Sagamore Hills Township Zoning Office during normal business hours or on the township
