Zoning Updates: On July 27, the Summit County Planning Commission will be reviewing the Boston Township Zoning Commission's recommendation to remove the section of the zoning ordinance that allows accessory buildings to be used as quarters for hired help (section 5014a). After the county's review, the Zoning Commission can schedule a hearing on the matter. The Board of Zoning Appeals will be hearing an appeal from Daniel Bridle regarding his property at 5649 Akron-Cleveland Road at their meeting on July 25 at 6:30PM. In addition, an appeal request from Kamper City for its property at 5549 Akron-Cleveland Road will also be heard that night. Mark Majewski of North Star Planning has begun the process of helping the Zoning Commission draft changes to the zoning ordinance based on the JEDD Corridor Analysis that he prepared. The initial focus will be the area in close proximity to Seasons Road Any changes to the zoning ordinance will require separate hearings by both the Zoning Commission and the Township Trustees.
