The Community Development Department depends on residents to serve our community on either the Miami Township Zoning Commission or the Miami Township Board of Zoning Appeals. The boards are an excellent way to volunteer by interacting with fellow residents and helping shape the future of the township.
The Board of Zoning Appeals hears all requests for variances, conditional uses, substitutions of non-conforming uses, and administrative appeals. It is a trustee-appointed position. The board meets on the first Monday of every month beginning at 6 p.m.
The Zoning Commission oversees the zoning map and zoning resolution of the township. The commission hears cases pertaining to map amendments, planned developments, and architectural review. It is a trustee-appointed position. The commission meets on the second Tuesday of each month starting at 6 p.m.
To serve on a board or commission, you must live in unincorporated Miami Township. The township is always accepting applications in anticipation of an opening on a board or to fill an alternate position. To apply, please send a letter of interest and resume to:
