Building a House

The Zoning Inspector is responsible for enforcing zoning regulations and issuing new building permits. The Township realizes that Zoning is an important part of protecting property values. Two committees made of community citizens are the Board of Zoning Appeals and the Zoning Board. They advise the Trustees on zoning issues. The Hartford Township Comprehensive Land Use Report, adopted in 2007, addresses the future land use in the township.

  • Culvert Permits: $900 which includes identification and preparation of culvert site, issue a permit, provide 304 or 411 gravel to hold culvert in place and inspect the finished job. An additional $300 for an additional 10 foot. The homeowner will provide the culvert to the following specifications: at least "12 by 30', 16-gauge riveted steel; or double-walled, smooth walled plastic, or at Trustees discretion. If a larger culvert is required, the fee will be enough to cover the actual cost of the materials.

  • Installation of ditch tile: in front of properties shall be with smooth wall perforated tile, with 12 inches of cover, and allow a ditch depth of at least 6 inches. Site will be evaluated for proper fall from road.

  • Zoning permits for a house: $1,100 for 1,500 square foot house plus $.73 per square foot.
