Zoning & Development

The Development Services Department oversees and enforces Washington Township's Zoning Resolution, the legal document that controls and coordinates land use in the unincorporated section of the township. Staff members also enforce the township's property maintenance code and the state of Ohio's nuisance abatement standards for high weeds and grass.

Taking Services to Residents

Zoning inspectors regularly take their services on the road in order to provide a high level of customer service and a proactive approach to enforcement. Their goal is to identify violations before neighbors need to call. Inspectors provide assistance in a wide range of areas – from zoning violations and high grass to zoning permits. 

Residents or businesses are encouraged to use our online portal to access the different services that the Development Services Department offers including planning and zoning operations, ribbon cutting or groundbreaking requests, code enforcement, and more.

A variety of home and garden projects require a permit or must adhere to zoning requirements. If you're unsure about requirements for your project, give us a call at 937-433-0152.
