Architectural Rules, Regulations, Building Fees and Point System
HOWARD TOWNSHIP PERMITS: Attention Contractors and Residents: Howard Township is a zoned township, therefore requires prior approval and a permit prior to building or construction. Projects requiring prior approval include, but are not limited to: new home construction, garages, additions, decks, new driveways, or adding concrete or blacktop to existing driveways. It is the sole responsibility of the property owner to contact the Howard Township Zoning Inspector, Bill Gordon (740-485-0202), at the Howard Township Office to submit an application for approval. Anyone failing to do so is in direct violation of Howard Township Zoning Resolution and may be subject to fines and/or penalties.
Regarding Culverts: Due to Knox County Storm Water Management requirements, Howard Township will institute the following. A culvert approved by the Knox County Engineers Office must be installed before a building permit is issued. If at any time during construction a culvert is damaged inoperable, a stop work order will be issued until rectified.
