Notice of Reopening:
We will be reopening the township for regular business beginning May, 1st. There will be some informal adjustments to basic procedures, as the COVID-19 virus is ongoing, but public meetings should continue as scheduled, barring unanticipated conditions that would cause us to have to re-evaluate. Due to sterilization concerns, public use of the township hall will continue to be suspended until the State of Ohio reverses the current social-distancing guidelines that are in place.
We will be using the garage bay area to allow for adequate spacing between attendees and township officials. Limitations in the building's layout allow for approximately 30 individuals to attend. While this isn’t ideal, this best protects all participants and helps reduce the chance of spreading any communicable disease. Please note that the township does not have PPE available to distribute to the public during these meetings. Residents and visitors are encouraged to come prepared with their own items.

We look forward to seeing everyone soon,
Your Trustees: Rod Myers, Mike Dattilo, Josh Varble
Meet our new township administrator:
Please join us in welcoming Kevin Vaughn, our new township administrator. Born and raised on the east side of Cleveland, Kevin moved to Central Ohio after being a firefighter/EMT for 12 years, taking a position with the City of Dublin.
Kevin served on council in Plain City, and then transitioned into the position of village administrator. After serving for five years, Kevin most recently was the township administrator for Clinton Township, Franklin County.
We are excited about the experience he brings to Berkshire Township, with extensive knowledge of municipal and township government in Ohio, and look forward to his expertise as our community continues to grow and thrive.
Kevin resides in Plain City with his wife and two of his daughters, while his third daughter and son-in-law, residing in Cleveland, just welcomed a new baby.

Welcome to Berkshire Township, Delaware County, Ohio
Berkshire Township, Ohio; the Community with a Rural Lifestyle Convenient To City Amenities
Founded in 1806, Berkshire Township is located in Delaware County, Ohio. We enjoy rural living yet are only 25 minutes away from downtown Columbus. Conveniently served by the I-71 exit at US36-SR37, we are situated between the City of Delaware and the Village of Sunbury, and about five miles north of the city of Westerville. The Village of Galena lies within the Berkshire Township boundaries. Our location midway between Alum Creek State Park and Hoover Reservoir gives residents excellent opportunities to enjoy the spectacular outdoor recreational experiences provided by those preserves.
Our proximity to I-71 offers economic opportunities for growth and development and has attracted some of the nation's largest retail and residential developers. The Tanger Outlet Mall and the Northstar Community and Country Club are just two of the area's newer developments. A.D. Farrow, located at the I-71 interchange opened in our township in 2007. It is the oldest continuously operating Harley Davidson dealer in the U.S.
Berkshire Township is “on the grow” - yet still fortunate to enjoy a decidedly rural feel, with many farms owned and operated by descendants of the families who founded the township in 1806.
We are part of the Big Walnut School System and the Olentangy School System, which are both rated “excellent” or better within the state of Ohio. The BST&G Fire Company and the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office support our residents and businesses.
