EATON TOWNSHIP ZONING COMMISSION

The Eaton Township Zoning Commission was created with the adoption of Township Zoning on November 7, 1950. The Commission is composed of five residents who are appointed by the Trustees to serve a five-year term. Every year, one Board member’s term expires, and they may be reappointed. This method assures that there will always be persons with experience remaining on the Board. The Zoning Commission is charged with the duty of writing the Eaton Township Zoning Resolution and with amending the book as needed to keep up with changes and progress. As provided by the Ohio Revised Code, the Trustees, the Zoning Commission, or anyone wishing to file for a Zoning Amendment may recommend changes to the Zoning Resolution. Both the Zoning Commission and the Trustees hold public hearings before any changes are made to the Zoning Resolution.The Zoning Commission meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. All meetings are open to the public. If you wish to address the Board, please call the secretary at 440-748-2236 and request to be put on the agenda.

EATON TOWNSHIP BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS

A GUIDE TO MANAGING YOUR BMP RETENTION/DETENTION BASINS

Click here to watch this video designed for distribution to HOA’s and commercial sites in order to start a dialogue with them on the subject of retention/detention basin maintenance. The DVD intentionally does not include specific remedies and/or problems that basins may encounter. The intent of the DVD is to make those responsible for maintenance of these Post-Construction BMP’s more aware of the responsibilities they have and hopefully make them want to contact the township about what specific design items they need to inspect and be aware of.
