Zoning Department

The Sharon Township Zoning Department, led by Zoning Inspector, Neil Jones, is strictly responsible for issuing zoning permits, residential and commercial, within Sharon. Residents are welcome to call the department with any questions they may have about their property or community land. In addition to the zoning inspector, the zoning department consists of two separate boards. The Zoning Commission is responsible for reviewing the zoning resolution and making recommendations for amendments and changes to the Township Board of Trustees. The Board of Zoning Appeals holds hearings for Conditional Zoning Certificates for the use of land, buildings, or other structures, hears variance applications and hears and decides appeals. The Board of Trustees accepts applications for both of these Boards at the end of each calendar year for the following year should there be any open positions. Please email Christine Lawson (clawson@sharontwp.org) if you are interested in serving on one of our Boards.
