The zoning commission’s deliberations and ultimate recommendations are very important. Only the township trustees have the authority to actually approve a zoning change or text amendment. Although, the trustees must receive the zoning commission’s recommendation the trustees can accept, modify, deny or override the recommendation from the zoning commission by majority vote.

As required by Ohio Revised Code (ORC) §519, all members must be residents of the unincorporated area of Plain Township. Appointments for the member are five years, and the terms overlap.
