Zoning is designed to protect the health, safety and, welfare of those living in a community. Most zoning regulations are a matter of common sense, and help to make sure that people use their property in such a way that it is not detrimental to those living in the same area, or to the community as a whole.

Almost all construction, from fences and decks to homes and businesses, requires a zoning permit. A complete copy of the zoning code can either be downloaded from this site or purchased for a nominal fee at the zoning office.

In addition to the Zoning Inspector, Coventry Township has two appointed boards who deal with zoning related issues. The Zoning Commission holds meetings and public hearings for all changes to the Zoning Resolution. The Board of Zoning Appeals may grant variances for the zoning code after a public hearing is held. All adjacent property owners are notified if a request for a variance is made, and have the opportunity to state their opinions or concerns at the public hearing.

Door to Door Solicitation and Parking Lot Sales No Longer Permitted in Coventry

Due to a large number of complaints by residents and business owners the Coventry Township Zoning Commission and Board of Trustees recently adopted regulations which no longer permit sales or soliciting orders by going “door to door” in neighborhoods and or “Transient Vendors” from setting up in parking lots and selling products.

Please contact the Zoning Office or the Summit County Sheriff if a door to door vendor comes through your neighborhood.

Groups operating under Non Profit Status are permitted to conduct door to door solicitations, but must register at the Zoning Office.
