He is currently under contract with Copley Township to assist in re-writing the Zoning Resolution.
The Land Use Committee is studying the impacts of conservation development for Copley Township and how it might be included in the Comprehensive Plan. Conservation development is a planning tool that can be used to allow flexible lot layouts, creates open space, and reduces the length of roads and utilities, which allows developers to minimize maintenance and environmental impacts. The public is encouraged to attend this meeting.
