Prior to 1972 zoning in Miami Township was regulated by Montgomery County. In the general election held in November 1972, Miami Township residents by a majority vote approved a proposed zoning resolution that was adopted by the Board of Trustees. That original version has been amended many times and is anticipated to change as the community does.
The Zoning Resolution has two major purposes:
1) To set the standards and expectations for how existing properties can be developed and used, and;
2) To act as a tool to implement the land use goals and policies set by community planning efforts, such as The Plan.
Any questions or comments regarding the zoning resolution may be directed to the Community Development Department. The Zoning Resolution was last updated in October 2022.
The Miami Township Exterior Property Maintenance Code was originally passed by Resolution #137-97 on December 17, 1997. The code was updated and adopted under the Township’s Home Rule Authority on August 28, 2018. The Miami Township Board of Trustees is authorized by Section 505.73 of the Ohio Revised Code to control the maintenance of existing structures and premises as necessary within the unincorporated area of the township.
Where the Zoning Resolution sets the standards for what and where structures can be built, the Exterior Property Maintenance Code sets standards for how the structure and surrounding property should be maintained.
