Zoning Authority

Brown Township uses Franklin County Zoning as administered through the Franklin County Economic Development and Planning Department. They've recently updated its office hours to be 8:00am-3:00pm, Monday through Friday. Residential building permits and zoning compliance can be applied for through their online permit portal at any time. For those seeking building permit related information they can email building@franklincountyohio.gov. And those seeking zoning, subdivision, or floodplain related information can email planning@franklincountyohio.gov.  Email responses will be provided as quickly as possible.
