In January the Board of Trustees appointed a Steering Committee to review and update the Land Use Plan, but the basis of the plan will come from the participation of residents in the Township and their comments at key moments in the process. The first Steering Committee Meeting took place March 13, 2017 at the Township Hall.
A Land Use Plan is a policy document that serves as a vision for the future which is intended to guide decision making that designates appropriate land uses based on infrastructure and development constraints for physical development. Comprised of policy statements, principles, goals, objectives, strategies and maps, the Plan guides the physical, social, and economic development of the Township and its neighborhoods, including both private and public development. The 2011 Land Use Plan has helped guide the Township to address development issues for this community to pursue, however, new information, technologies and demands face the community that must be dealt with in order to manage growth in a responsible and respectful way. Land is an exhaustible resource that once developed and converted to a use, is often difficult to change. Land will continue to be developed, but the pattern, rate, timing and location of how land is developed can be shaped by the Township through well-founded planning policies. When considering the future land use pattern the key question is not whether or not Danbury till grow, but how it will grow and change to serve future residents.
To stay up-to-date on the planning process and how to get involved with public participation, please check back regularly via the link below.
Police Department Press Release:
Ohio Awards Certification to the Danbury Township Police Department
for Adopting Standards.
COLUMBUS - Certification to the Danbury Township Police Department (Ottawa County) has adopted and implemented state standards established by the Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board as part of the state's efforts to strengthen community and police relations.
More than 480 agencies employing over 26,000 officers (or 76 percent of all law enforcement officers in Ohio, including agencies and officers in most of Ohio's metropolitan areas) are either certified or in the process of becoming certified by meeting standards for the use of force, including deadly force, and agency recruitment and hiring.
The standards are the first of their kind in Ohio and were developed by the Collaborative in August 2015.
The State has partnered with the Buckeye State Sheriffs' Association and the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police to help certify Ohio's nearly 960 law enforcement agencies on the process to ensure that they are in compliance with Ohio's new standards.
The first list of all Ohio compliant agencies will be published by the end of March.
For more information on the Ohio Collaborative, the certification process for law enforcement and the complete list of agencies who have been certified, please click here.FEMA Great Lakes Coastal Study & New Flood Map Information
FEMA is preparing new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for Ottawa and the
surrounding Counties. While Ottawa County recently adopted maps in 2015, these
proposed new maps would replace the 2015 maps. FEMA anticipates that these new
maps will be ready for adoption within the next 2-3 years (2018-2019). During this 2-3
year time frame, they will conduct public meetings and community outreach for residents
to attend and comment. The Township will do the best that we can to help filter that information to our residents.
