36% of Dover Township residents who modified the exterior of an existing structure or added an additional permanent structure (like a shed or fence) to their property in 2016 did so without a building permit. As a result, the Dover Township trustees and Zoning Inspector Dave Weber are considering implementing penalties against those who begin these projects in the future without the proper permits.

Dover Township is zoned, and changes or additions to properties must meet all zoning requirements. More information is available from Zoning Inspector Dave Weber. He is at the Township Office Mondays, 9a – 12p. Contact Dave with questions at the office at 330.343.6413 or on his cell phone 330.440.1944.
