The Zoning Department is responsible for all zoning issues in the Township. All building and building expansion, as well as changes in land use, require advance approval by the Zoning Inspector, Colleen Arthur, who is available at 1518 St. Rt 113E from 10:00AM to noon on Wed, Thurs, and Friday. The office may be reached by phone at 419-499-2354.
The Township also has two Zoning Boards which meet on an as-needed basis. The Board of Appeals convenes in response to appeals by citizens for variances and conditional uses. The Zoning Commission considers requests for changes to the Zoning Resolution, which is the governing document for all Township zoning issues. The Township is aware of the need to modify the Resolution in response to community land use needs and the Commission holds hearings on such issues as appropriate.
