Union Town Center Fact Sheet

The City of Union is Boone County’s second largest city with a 2012 population of 5,586. The City’s population increased by 85% between 2000 and 2010. This time period coincided with the opening of the new U.S. 42 and the completion of a 3-school campus of Ryle High School, Gray Middle School and Mann Elementary School, all located in the City of Union.

The median household income in Union grew from $85,454 in 2000 to $100,623 in 2011. Further, 43% of the City’s population holds a college bachelor’s degree or higher. Union continues to be one of the top wealthiest and highly educated communities in Northern Kentucky. Since 2005, 1,525 housing units have been approved for construction within a one-half mile of the Union Town Center. Approximately 40% of these housing units have been constructed despite the slow economy. Coupled with the nearby residential neighborhoods like Farmview, Plantation Pointe, Orleans, Lassing Green, Cool Springs, Red Stone Village and Triple Crown, the Union Town Center is strategically located for a retail/office center.

Future residential development is planned west of the Town Center from Camp Ernst Road to Old Union Road between Longbranch Road and Hathaway Road. This could result in another 3,000 residential units providing more roof-tops for a much needed Town Center.
