Zoning Department

Zoning is the most common technique local governments use to influence the location and density of development. A zoning ordinance has two parts: a text and a map. The text describes the different land use zones, density standards, allowable and non-allowable uses, development standards, and the administration of the process. If you are looking for certain forms, maps or even just curious what the zoning regulations are, please check out the menu on the right. You will find all that information and more.

Enforcement of zoning regulations-township zoning inspector

For the purpose of enforcing the zoning regulations, the board of township trustees may provide for a system of zoning certificates, may establish and fill the position of township zoning inspector, together with assistants as the board deems necessary, may fix the compensation for those positions, and may make disbursements for them. The township fiscal officer may be appointed secretary of the township zoning commission, secretary of the township board of zoning appeals, and zoning inspector, and the fiscal officer may receive compensation for the fiscal officer’s services in addition to other compensation allowed by law.
