Zoning Commission

The Boardman Zoning Commission is a recommending body consisting of five members appointed to five-year terms by the Boardman Township Trustees.

The Zoning Commission acts upon recommendations of the Mahoning County Planning Commission and forwards recommendations to the Board of Trustees regarding text amendments to the Zoning Ordinance and rezone requests from property owners. Once a recommendation is forwarded to the Trustees, it can only be modified or overturned by unanimous vote of the Board.

A legal notice is published at least 10 days before the hearing of the Zoning Commission.  All hearings are open to the public.
