Zoning is the regulation of the use, location, height, number and size of land, buildings or structures within a specified zone or area of the community. Its purpose is to protect property values and preserve the desired character of the community, while providing for orderly growth and uniform development. Since any zoning is a restriction upon unlimited use of land by the owner, it must have reasonableness to public health and safety.
Ohio authorized township zoning in 1947. Ohio law provides for the submission of a zoning plan to the electors of the Township and if it is adopted, contains provisions for the administration, enforcement and amendment of the zoning plan. In 1955, the Concord Township Zoning Resolution was adopted.
The Zoning Inspector is appointed by the Board of Trustees for the purpose of enforcing the provisions of the Zoning Resolution.
If you plan to build or remodel anything on your property, from a house to a fence in the backyard, you will need to first obtain a Zoning Permit at the Zoning Office. Your plans and application will be reviewed to ensure they meet all applicable zoning requirements before a permit is issued. The Zoning Department also investigates complaints of possible zoning violations, ranging from construction without a valid zoning permit to the location of junk motor vehicles on property.
