Zoning Inspectors Group

The Ohio Township Association’s Zoning Inspectors Group meets quarterly and combines networking with education. The informal group was formed at the request of OTA members; it does not operate by a set of bylaws and has no governing board.

The Zoning Inspectors meet monthly and meetings combine networking with educational information. The Zoning Inspectors Group is also a great resource to ask questions of counterparts.
