Zoning Inspector, Zoning Commission, and Zoning Board of Appeals

The Troy Township Zoning Inspector is responsible for enforcement of the zoning resolution. First, he is responsible for issuing all zoning permits and assuring the Township that all permits are issued within the confines of the zoning resolution. Second, he is responsible for referring all requests for variances to the resolution to the Board of Zoning Appeals. Thirdly, he is responsible for responding to all complaints of zoning violations, and taking the necessary actions to eliminate those violations, which includes referring such violations to common pleas court hearings. The current Zoning Inspector for Troy Township is Ron White, who can be reached at 419-652-2251. If no answer please leave a message including your name and telephone number.

The Troy Township Zoning Commission is responsible for the contents of the zoning resolution. Their job is to keep the zoning resolution up-to-date for the protection of Troy Township as a whole. For these purposes the zoning resolution not only includes the text, but the zoning map as well. The Zoning Commission proposes to the Township Trustees any changes to the text or the map as they determine to be in the best interests of the Township. The Trustees then, after public hearings, must act on those proposals. It takes a unanimous vote of the Trustees to reject a proposal of the Commission, but only two votes to accept a proposal. After a Trustee acceptance of a proposal, the public by petition in accordance with State of Ohio law may request a referendum vote on that proposal. If no referendum is requested the proposal goes into effect, and must be enforced by the Zoning Inspector and the Trustees. Current Zoning Resolution (PDF File)
