Zoning How-To

File a Zoning Complaint

The Bath Township Zoning Department also acts as Code Enforcement for the township. The ordinances enforced are those found in the Bath Township Zoning Resolution, as supported by the Ohio Revised Code. Common complaints include junk vehicles and debris, noxious weeds and overgrown properties, businesses operating out of a residentially-zoned property, structures and work being done without a permit, and other health and safety issues. If you have a concern or complaint about a property within the township, please fill out the Zoning Complaint form.  We will be happy to look into it!
