Morgan Township Zoning

Morgan Township has its own set of zoning regulations, independent of Butler County. Zoning came to Morgan Township by a voter referendum in Nov. 1988. Morgan Township decided to hire its own zoning administrator to oversee its zoning in 1995. Our Zoning Regulations can be seen at the Butler County's website at:
