Zoning Inspectors Group

Zoning Inspectors Group training opportunities. 

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

Full Upcoming Events Calendar


There is no cost to be a member of the Zoning Inspectors Group, but there is a cost to attend the trainings. An associate membership in the OTA does provide for reduced training fees. The list of members is maintained by OTA staff. If you would like to be placed on the list, please email OTA Meeting and Events Coordinator Michael Zaky at zaky@ohiotownships.com.

      Tiny Houses and Temporary Structures

      Peter Griggs, Attorney, Brosius, Johnson & Griggs, LLC


      Despite the growing enthusiasm for tiny houses, many zoning resolutions fail to address this increasing trend. This seminar will focus on recent trends on tiny housing zoning regulations, whether or not your township needs to regulate, and a review and discussion on sample zoning provisions to address tiny housing.
