Whether access to the interstate or the Great Miami Recreational Trail, Moraine’s infrastructure is a boon. Developers and major business stakeholders agree that highway accessibility is a major attraction for the City. Opportunities have been identified to set Moraine up for continued success through its infrastructure, such as improving trail connectivity and actively participating in other agencies’ project planning. Since the bulk of Moraine’s infrastructure is in solid shape this section focuses on examining where enhancements to these systems (i.e., roads, sewers, bridges, trails, etc.) can help initiate or enhance the goals of this Plan’s other sections.


  • Create a vibrant destination.

  • Promote a balanced development pattern to meet the community’s needs.

  • Maintain infrastructure and support job creation.

  • Diversify housing options.


What Did We Hear?

From the survey: Providing/maintaining infrastructure (i.e., roads, bridges, etc.) was identified as a category that Moraine should prioritize. Key Trends from community input on infrastructure:

  • Major employer stakeholders expressed concerns about no public transit service for their third-shift employees. Many manufacturing employees have challenges with reliable personal transportation. 

  •  The Jefferson Regional Water Authority serves the far western portions of the City. The sewer and water infrastructure in this area is adequate for the future development contemplated in this plan. Existing water main sizing is smaller, and flows are less than ideal for commercial development.


  • Leverage infrastructure assets that make Moraine a desirable destination.

    • STRATEGY: Create a “fly-in community” by linking the Airpark and adjacent houses with private hangars and ensure the City’s zoning ordinance permits these as accessory uses.

    • STRATEGY: Improve bike and multi-use trail connectivity throughout the City and with neighboring communities, notably Sellar’s Bridge leading into Focus Area One.

    • STRATEGY: Continue to monitor the roads in Moraine under the City’s jurisdiction to maintain their ability to move people and goods through the City.

  • Make the development focus areas identified in this Plan ready for private development.

    • STRATEGY: Contact Montgomery County Environmental Services to gather flow information, evaluate existing tap fees already paid to determine what credits are available for redevelopment opportunities, and assess if capacity fees have been paid for the development focus areas. 

    • STRATEGY: Work with utility providers to create an “early warning” system to alert staff to potential issues with existing businesses, such as decreases in power or water usage, lower electric bills, etc.

    • STRATEGY: Develop and follow a capital improvement plan. ​


  • A single-unit detached residential, formerly called a detached single-family house or single-family residence, is a self-contained residential building that stands independently and is not physically connected to other dwelling units. This type of housing structure is distinguished by its autonomy and exclusivity, as it accommodates only one household or family, in contrast to multi-unit residential dwellings that house multiple families or households within a single building. Most of Moraine’s existing housing stock falls within this category.



    • Single-unit residential detached.


    • Single-unit houses, pocket or neighborhood parks, and institutional.

    Physical Form

    Building Placement and Massing

    • 2 ½ stories or 30’ maximum height.

    Landscape and Open Space

    • Detached houses often come with their own lot.

    • Screens and buffers when along higher-traffic roadways or higher-intensity land uses. 

    • Visible green spaces, street trees, ornamental plantings.


    • Sidewalks, bike lanes, or multi-use paths, if applicable.
