Licking Township Zoning


ZONING INSPECTOR: The 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 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.

ZONING COMMISSION: The 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 the 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.

BOARD OF ZONING APPEALS: The Board of Zoning Appeals is responsible for determining whether Zoning Resolution variances fall within, or outside, the intent of the Zoning Resolution. If the Zoning Board of Appeals votes to accept the variance as within the intent of the Zoning Resolution, the Zoning Inspector issues a zoning permit.  Meetings held the third Thursday of each month if a variance is before the board. 

ZONING CLERK: The Zoning Clerk will assist with the overall process of Zoning Management for Licking Township by processing the application process of all zoning and variance requests.  In doing this process this position will help the applicant with the process, and assure that all regulations and legal aspects of the position are followed.
