Zoning Commission

The establishment of a Zoning Commission (ZC) is required by law for any township in Ohio that has adopted zoning. The job of the Commission is to review, and provides recommendations for, all re-zoning and planned development requests within the Township. The Commission also develops recommended zoning regulations for the Board of Trustees and assists in the development of the Township's comprehensive plan. 

The Zoning Commission consists of five regular members and two alternate members appointed by the Township Trustees. All members are residents of the Township. The Commission holds regular public meetings every month and special meetings, as needed. Meetings may be canceled due to a lack of business.
