The Miami Township Zoning Resolution was originally adopted in 1972. Prior to 1972 zoning was regulated by Montgomery County.The Zoning Resolution is intended in part to implement the larger goals of the Miami Township Comprehensive Land Use Plan. At the heart of any zoning code is an attempt to balance the interests of individuals with the needs of the community. The Zoning Resolution has been amended a number of times since 1972 in order to adapt to changing lifestyles, new technology, and various concerns of residents over the years. We anticipate that the code will continue to change with the community and the Planning and Zoning Department is available to discuss questions or comments regarding the Zoning Resolution.
The Miami Township Exterior Property Maintenance Code was passed by Resolution #137-97 on December 17, 1997. 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 accessory within the unincorporated area of the Township.
The Zoning Map is the official representation of the zoning classification for properties within the unincorporated portion of Miami Township. Not all zoning classifications (districts) contained in the Zoning Resolution have been used. All properties were placed into one classification or another when the map was first adopted in 1972. Since 1972 numerous properties have been rezoned from one zoning district into another zoning district or classification. Property owners may request, by filing an application, to have their property rezoned into a different zoning district. Please contact our staff if you have questions regarding the process to request that your property be rezoned.
