City Office

From the Desk of Mayor Hardman



Mayor HardmanThis past August, United Dairy Farmers opened their brand-new store on the corner of Kemper and Lebanon Road. It was a grand community event as the Lindner family, Sharonville residents, Chamber of Commerce members, Princeton City School District administrators, and your Sharonville elected officials came together to cut the ribbon on this five-million-dollar investment. (And then, of course, we ate ice cream.) Thanks to the Lindner family's commitment to the cities they locate in, our City of Sharonville logo will proudly welcome all those who pass by that corner of our town.

But UDF is not the only business growing, expanding, relocating and making home in our great City.   As the City wraps up infrastructure improvements to Chester Road, we are thrilled that multi-million dollar private investments are coming to the Northern Lights corridor. Third Eye Brewery will be opening in the Northern Lights District in 2019. Third Eye's craft brews, created by the father-daughter duo of Tom and Chloe Schaefer, should draw residents and visitors from around the region. Tru by Hilton broke ground on their brand-new 12-million-dollar hotel in September. This project cleared off a run-down parcel on Dowlin Drive and will welcome the tech-savvy business and leisure traveler to Sharonville in the near future. LaQuinta Inn and Suites, Sharonville, just completed an entire interior renovation of their 150-room hotel resulting in a more welcoming and modern guest experience. And, you can't drive down Chester Road without noticing the tremendous investment that Liv-Inn Suites is making to our community. Their bright-new electronic signage really welcomes people to their renovated property and to Sharonville.

As the public improvements to this corridor come to a close, the City continues to focus its efforts on reimagining other portions of the City. The renovation of the John J. Steckler Community Center's original gym comes to a completion this Fall (and expect new carpet throughout the building). Groundbreaking will be occurring on a new Police station and the renovation of the Cornell Road fire station. Inside this edition of the Hometown Guide, there is exciting news about progress on improvements to Sharonville's Gorman Park. And, we are actively reviewing our historic downtown Sharonville for additional public investment. It is truly an exciting time to live, play and work in Sharonville. What a privilege it is for me to serve this amazing City!
