BATH TWP.: Trustee Elaina Goodrich is asking for letters of interest from township residents willing to serve on either the Bath Zoning Commission or the Appearance Review Commission.



The five members and two alternates appointed to these boards by the trustees serve staggered, five-year terms. The ARC meets at 5 p.m. on the first Monday of the month and the Zoning Commission meets at 7 p.m. the first Thursday of the month.



Zoning Commission members are responsible for overseeing the township’s comprehensive zoning resolution and making changes and additions, when and as appropriate, to that document. ARC members concentrate on appearance and the architectural, landscaping and building design standards/needs of the township.



Currently, the positions available are for alternates to the Zoning Commission and the ARC for a two-year term, Goodrich stated.



Should a five-year term member resign, alternates have the option, depending on how well they have done in their service to the commission, to be considered for appointment as a full member, she said.



Training, education and or experience in matters relative to each commission would be helpful.



Send letters of interest to Goodrich in care of Bath Township, P.O. Box 1188, Bath, OH 44210-1188.
