Zoning Regulations

Since its inception, the Commission has provided technical assistance in the preparation, interpretation, and enactment of zoning resolutions to the unincorporated political subdivisions within Allen County as required in the Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 519. The Commission will assist member political subdivisions in the review, development, and revision of zoning regulations to ensure that development occurs in an orderly and measurable manner. To further this goal, the Commission has a Land Division Process Brochure to help understand the process of lot splits.

Zoning is enacted for the general purpose of promoting the public health, safety, comfort, and welfare of the residents of the township; to protect the property rights of all individuals by assuring the compatibility of uses and practices within districts; to facilitate the provision of public utilities and public services; to lessen congestion on public streets, roads and highways; to provide for the administration and enforcement of the zoning resolution, including the provision of penalties for its violation; and for any other purposes provided in the following resolutions, the Ohio Revised Code, or under common law rulings.
