Planning and Zoning

Stephen C. Barnard, Zoning Administrator

The Zoning Administrator works with the Township Planning Commission to reviewing various requests relative to land use and development, such as rezoning requests; subdivision plats, site plans, and others.  The Zoning Administrator is also responsible for the administration of the Zoning Ordinance and aids in the development of the Township Master Plan.  He also assists the Planning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals in the performance of their duties.

The Township Master Plan was written in 2008 and was recently updated.

The Forest Home Township Zoning Ordinance was rewritten in 2015 to be consistent with modern zoning and planning practices and statutes.

In order to make it easy for citizens to access various Permit Applications, I have launched the “Online Permit Request System”.
