About the Township

Pierce-Township-2-color-WEB

Founded in 1853, Pierce Township encompasses 23.5 square miles located in the Southwest corner of Clermont County, Ohio.

While just 20 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, Pierce’s 13,000+ residents enjoy countryside charm comfortably blended with well-maintained neighborhoods in all price ranges. Pierce residents and visitors can choose from a variety of family oriented recreational options; from boating on the Ohio River, playing golf on one of three highly respected courses, to hiking in our Nature Park and much more. Families who live in Pierce value its rural atmosphere, safe neighborhoods, schools, and professional public services with easy access to shopping, arts, entertainment and professional sports.

The Township’s primary commercial corridor, Ohio Pike, is alive and active with new development including a 10-screen movie theater, and a Kroger Marketplace.

Government services are provided by a three person Board of Trustees and a Fiscal Officer, each elected by Pierce residents to staggered four-year terms. Pierce Township provides professional full-time Police, Fire, Office of Planning, Zoning, and Community Development, Development Facilitation and Service Department services. The Trustees and Fiscal Officer carefully oversee a $14+ million budget with day-to-day operations handled by a Township Administrator. The Board holds regularly scheduled public meetings on the second Wednesday of each month to conduct Township business. Special meetings or work sessions, which are also open to the public, are called and advertised as needed. Pierce residents, business owners, visitors and any interested persons are welcome to attend, and are encouraged to participate in, public meetings. Pierce staff are happy to assist you with your questions or concerns during normal business hours M-F 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Police and Fire are on-duty 24/7)
