There are three ways in which amendments or supplements to the Zoning Resolution may be initiated:

  • A resolution passed by the Board of Trustees
  • The filing of an application by one or more individual land owners
  • By the members of the Zoning Commission


A majority decision by the Board of Trustees to certify an amendment or district change is necessary to confirm or over-turn the vote of the Zoning Commission members.

Make sure you check with the Zoning Inspector before any construction begins on your property. This would also include any additional out buildings, sheds, or garages.

Five people occupy seats on the Zoning Commission for a term of five years and are appointed by the Board of Trustees. Presently serving are:

                Andy Kerr

                               Term: 12-31-17


                Keith Cornelius
