ZONING
Generally, it is illegal to use any structure, building created, erected, changed, converted or enlarged, wholly or partly, until a Zoning Certificate has been issued by the Zoning Inspector.  If you are making any change or addition to your property, you need to contact the Village Zoning Inspector. Please take a few minutes and see if anything listed here affects you and if you have questions, look them up, or call Eric Campbell @ 419-287-4768. Remember, our zoning ordinances are listed on the website on the Village Government page
Below is information on some common zoning issues that are either not known to everyone or have not been enforced for several years. In order for the village to remain the village that we know and love, we must enforce our zoning. There are many zoning rules, but here are a few that are commonly used (and abused). I encourage all residents that are considering any changes to their property visit the website and read the zoning that relates to your planned project.
  1. Swimming pools  #702  A permit is required once a pool goes beyond a certain size. It makes no difference if it is above or below ground. There are also fence regulations in regards to pools. Make a call before you make a mistake.  
  2. Fencing #904  A permit is always required. Please consult the zoning ordinances and if in doubt, call Mr. Campbell.
  3. RV’s, and recreational vehicles, trailers, boats, etc. #701.2 There are rules regarding how many, where in your yard and even IF you can have these in your yards. Currently there are many illegally parked recreational vehicles, trailers, etc. in the village.  Please check out the rules in this regard and make adjustments before you are contacted.
  4. Accessory buildings.  #505.2 Utility sheds, garages, etc.  Again, consult zoning and seek assistance to understand the zoning prior to making your purchase by call Mr. Campbell @ 419-287-4768
We will be addressing problem areas. Please consult zoning with your questions before proceeding.
