We are starting to update the 2010 comprehensive land use plan for the township. It will take approximately one year to identify the issues and options, listen to public input and complete the plan. The Zoning Commission meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, at 7 PM, 3271 Cheshire Road, Delaware, OH and the public is encouraged to attend these meetings and make their opinions known. Comprehensive land use plans are advisory documents that may lend support as the basis for new zoning decisions.

Future land use and development of the township is an issue of great importance to all citizens of Berlin Township. A well drafted and supported comprehensive plan will help identify which areas of the township are best for residential development and which should be reserved for commercial and industrial development. The updated plan will take into consideration many factors such as existing roads, sewer availability, growth and development of abutting municipalities, environmental factors and community input.

We want your involvement and input in this process so that we can try to find a common ground and outline a future which best meets the hopes and expectations of our citizens. Please look for more on this subject on our website, Look for Comprehensive Land Use.
