The township board of trustees approved a resolution this week to rezone 409 properties so that multifamily dwellings such as apartments are not permitted on the properties.
The rezoning of those properties, which are located near Boardman Park, is part of a broader effort by the township zoning department to rezone neighborhoods that primarily are comprised of single-family residences so the zoning matches the neighborhood’s use.
In other business at a meeting this week, the board approved the purchase of five radio units for the fire department at a cost of $14,568.80.
The board also approved the transfer of a Raupp Avenue property, donated to the township by Clarence R. Smith Jr. in 2013, to the township’s land bank, which will in turn lease it to Boardman Park for $1.
Also, the board honored Mark Huberman, who earlier this summer retired as the chief magistrate of the Mahoning County Domestic Relations Court. Huberman’s retirement marked the end of a 30-year judicial career. He now is administrator for the Ohio Association of Magistrates and executive director of the Boardman-based National Health Association.
