Zoning

Businesses moving into Auburn Township need to apply for a use permit. It is in the permitting process that is determined that the proposed use is permitted at a given location and the business is registered with the township.

New signs require a sign permit.  If an old sign is moved to a new location on a property, a permit is required.  No permit is required to simply change the text of an old sign as long as the size and location do not change. Download Zoning Permit Application (PDF)

Garage sales in Auburn Township do not require a yard sale permit.  However, signs are not to be posted on utility poles or in the road right-of-way.  Within twenty-four hours of the conclusion of the sale, all signs must be removed from display.

The scheduled office hours to consult with Frank Kitko, Auburn Zoning Inspector, are Friday’s from 3:00pm to 5:00pm.  There is no appointment necessary.
