Farmington Twp. rejoins county zoning ordinance

Farmington Township is now a zoned municipality under the auspices of Warren County’s zoning ordinance.

The county commissioners on Wednesday took action to bring Farmington Twp. back into the program for the first time since 2012.

A public hearing was held at the outset of the commissioner’s meeting.

Planning Director Michael Lyon said that Farmington was initially a zoned municipality back in the 1960s when county zoning started and was one of few zoned on its own.

He said that the township left the program in 2012 but reached out to the county last fall about rejoining, an action the township took on Jan. 2.

Lyon explained that there were then several meetings with the township “reviewing some of the current uses they have” and developing a zoning map.

No comment was offered and the commissioners approved the change without discussion later in the meeting.


The commissioners also approved an agreement with Spring Creek to add $10,000 in Act 13 greenspace dollars to the township’s park rehabilitation effort.

“They were a little short on the funding,” Commissioner Dan Glotz said.

He added that the funding would be used to assist in renovating the restroom.
