Zoning Ordinance and SALDO

A new zoning ordinance and SALDO have been adopted for Eldred Township.

Complementary ordinances have also been approved in Ross, Chestnuthill and Jackson Townships. The ordinances establish certain regional uses, each of which is specifically assigned to one or more of those four townships. Each township to which a regional use is assigned must provide for that use in its zoning ordinance; those to which a particular regional use is not assigned will not have it. The regional uses and the townships to which they are assigned are set out in Section 400.4 of the zoning ordinance.

A joint meeting/hearing was held on Thursday, May 1, for the purpose of public comment and input on new Zoning and SALDO ordinances for participating West End townships. The hearing was held at the West End Firehouse and was attended by officials and residents from Eldred, Ross, Chestnuthill, and Jackson Townships.  Township Supervisors from all municipalities unanimously approved the changes to the new ordinances.  The Monroe County Planning Commission will be providing new zoning maps for the Townships  in the near future.

Community Awareness Bulletin  

Great news!

Eldred Township Elementary School

The Pleasant Valley School Board voted unanimously to transfer ownership of the Eldred Elementary School to Eldred Township for the sum of $1! Pretty good deal for the Township! The sale is contingent upon an agreement of sale which provides for a due diligence inspection (to be completed in 30 days) and information on the building appraisal and the terms of a reverter agreement between the two parties.  

Although planning for the use of the building is just beginning, the Township may use the building for office spaces, expansion of the existing YMCA facility, and community events.  

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
