The township minutes are posted on our website at and outside the fiscal office at the Boston Township Hall. Trustee meetings are the second and fourth Wednesday of the month. Zoning commission meets the second Tuesday of the month and the Board of Zoning Appeals meets the fourth Wednesday of the month.

Zoning Hearing: A zoning hearing has been set for Kamper City on March 28 at 6:30 at the township hall. Kamper City has requested two variances for a fence. They have applied for a height variance as well as a variance regarding the location of the fence.

Zoning Positions: Michael Delahanty was appointed to a full seat on the Board of Zoning Appeals, filling the seat vacated by Anne Marie Griffith who moved from the township. Mike had been serving on the BZA as an alternate. The Trustees are still looking for an alternate to the Zoning Commission and a replacement alternate to the Board of Zoning Appeals. Please contact one of the trustees if you would like to discuss serving as an alternate. Zoning board members are compensated $35 per meeting.

"No Parking" Signs Needed for Boston Mills Road: Due to a large increase in visitors to Blue Hen Falls, it has become necessary to post much of Boston Mills Road in the area of the falls as a "No Parking" zone. On some weekends it has been so congested that Boston Mills Road has been reduced to one lane.

Township Hall Parking Lot: The Boston Township Hall Committee and the Township Trustees have been investigating solutions to a situation that has become more prominent regarding the Township Hall parking lot. On some occasions when there is an event at the Township Hall, there are other nearby events which are making it difficult for those who rent the Township Hall to make full use of the parking lot. The state law regulating the designation of "Tow Away Zones" has been amended with new language taking effect in April.

Speed Limit Bill Enacted: On January 4, Governor Kasich signed Sub. H.B. 455, which among many other things, set the speed limit at "Thirty-five miles per hour on through highways, except state routes, that are outside municipal corporations and that are within a national park with boundaries extending through two or more counties." Even though this bill (which had among its co-sponsors State Representative Kristina Roegner and State Senator Frank LaRose) directly impacts the roads in Boston Township, none of the township officials were consulted during the process. The law will take effect in April.
