The township minutes are posted on our website at www.bostontownship.org 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.

Memorial Day: The Boston Township Trustees would like to thank all those who helped organize and/or participated in this year`s Memorial Day activities. We are pleased to be the host location for the Peninsula parade to Cedar Grove Cemetery. We especially would like to thank all those who participate each year in the parade that follows in Boston so that those service members can be adequately remembered and thanked for their service.

Zoning Updates: The Zoning Commission, working with Mark Majewski of Northstar Planning, has drafted a new section for the Zoning Ordinance labeled Seasons Road Business district (SRB). The SRB will include opportunities to attract new uses to the area along the east side of Akron-Cleveland Rd. north of Seasons Road. Summit County Planning will conduct a hearing on this proposed district on June 28. Their recommendations will then be evaluated for any modifications. At that point hearings will be held first by the Zoning Commission and then by the Township Trustees. Meanwhile, Northstar Planning will focus their attention on other areas of the Business Corridor. Increasingly, John Schneider, the township Zoning Inspector, has been fielding more inquiries from businesses seeking to locate in the Business Corridor.

Peninsula JEDD: On May 31, the Summit County Planning Commission approved the rezoning of two parcels to the category of Economic Activity District (EAD). The Zoning Commission held a hearing on the rezoning on June 12 and referred the matter to the Township which will hold a hearing on June 27. After 30 days, the rezoning will take effect. At that time, the two parcels can be added to the Boston Township-Peninsula JEDD. Once the two properties are added, then income tax can be collected from those working on the properties.
