Board of Zoning Appeals
The Board of Zoning Appeals is composed of (5) residents of the unincorporated area of the township appointed by the trustees for five-year terms.
The Board of Zoning Appeals may:
a. Hear and decide appeals where it is alleged there is error in any order, requirement, decision or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of Sections 519.01 to 519.25 of the Revised Code or of any resolution adopted pursuant thereto;
b. Authorize, upon appeal, in specific cases, such variance from the terms of the Zoning Resolution as will not be contrary to the public interest, where, owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement of the resolution will result in unnecessary hardship and so that the spirit of the resolution shall be observed and substantial justice done;
c. Grant conditional zoning certificates for the use of land, building or other structures if such certificates for specific uses are provided for the Zoning Resolution;
d. Revoke an authorized variance or conditional zoning certificate, if any condition of the variance or certificate is violated.
