The Howland Township Planning & Zoning Department handles several property maintenance complaints each year. The nature of these complaints can easily be resolved without the need to issue a citation. We suggest that residents and business owners become familiar with the Property Maintenance Code and Zoning Resolution to understand what is permitted and non-permitted uses of your property.

Knowing the regulations can help maintain good relations with your neighbors and assist Howland Township in sustaining its quality neighborhoods and attractive business districts. The Howland Township Property Maintenance Code was adopted by the Township Trustees to more quickly and efficiently address property maintenance complaints and unsafe or unkempt properties that have not come into compliance after notification. The intent of the Property Maintenance Code is to quickly remedy problems before neighborhood degradation occurs.
