Eaton Township Zoning Department
Eaton Township is zoned for the safety and protection of the property owners as well as for providing a means of controlling the location and type of Township development. Eaton Township has hired a consultant to assist in developing a Comprehensive Land Use Plan that will be used as a guide for planning for future Township development.
Eaton Township Zoning Department is divided into three parts: the Zoning Commission, which writes the laws, the Board of Zoning Appeals, which acts as the judiciary part, and the Zoning Inspector who enforces the Zoning Resolution.
Eaton Township Board of Zoning Appeals
The Board of Zoning Appeals is composed of five members who are appointed by the Trustees to serve a five-year term. Every year, one Board member's term expires, and they may be reappointed. This method assures that there will always be persons with experience remaining on the Board. The duties of the Eaton Township Board of Zoning Appeals are specifically spelled out in the Eaton Township Zoning Resolution, and are as follows: 1) Hear and decide appeals, 2) Consider Variance Requests, and 3) Grant Conditional Use Zoning Permits.
The Board of Zoning Appeals meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. (meetings are subject to cancellation without notice due to lack of agenda items). All meetings are open to the public. Contact the Zoning Inspector at 440-748-6706 for requests for an appeal, zoning variance or conditional use permit.
The current Board members are: Ken Morgan(Chair), Ernie Walker (Vice-Chair), Mary Skrovan, Elizabeth Rattray and Michael Gajdzik. Alternate members: Tony Farrella & John Stevens.

A Guide To Managing Your BMP Retention/Detention Basins
Click here to watch this video designed for distribution to HOA's and commercial sites in order to start a dialogue with them on the subject of retention/detention basin maintenance. The DVD intentionally does not include specific remedies and/or problems that basins may encounter. The intent of the DVD is to make those responsible for maintenance of these Post-Construction BMP's more aware of the responsibilities they have and hopefully make them want to contact the township about what specific design items they need to inspect and be aware of.
