- change "Pool" requirements. Delete all, but need to meet County requirements.
- change "Pond" requirements. Delete all, but need to meet CCSWCD and Ohio Regulations.
- renumbering of affected sections in Article X.
- changes involving zoning districts. Changes primarily involve addition of Conditional Uses to the "Official Schedule..." table.

Questionnaire & Aug 22nd Meeting Announcement
As a result of your responses to the township questionnaire sent out last year, we have been considering a variety of changes to the existing Zoning Resolution that are intended to reflect your collective thoughts and specific comments from that survey. This has been an ongoing process that continues to be addressed at each Commission meeting since the questionnaire results were tabulated and made available for your review.
The next Commission meeting, August 22, 2011 (see the calendar), will continue to address these changes. We invite, and strongly encourage, you to be part of the process as the Commission draws closer to finalizing the zoning changes that will soon be formally presented to you. At this meeting, a representative from the Logan, Union and Champaign Regional Planning Commission plans to be present. You can feel free to address any thoughts, issues, or concerns you may have regarding zoning and the regulations at this time.
