Planning and Zoning


Springfield Township strives to make our community a better place to live, work, and play. 
Administering and enforcing the Springfield Township zoning resolution, property maintenance code, and state nuisance & junk motor vehicle codes, our community is safer and more attractive.

Maintaining pride in our community requires the partnership and participation of all residents, businesses, and visitors. The Springfield Township’s various codes and resolutions are intended to benefit everyone, and these regulations are minimum standards designed to protect your neighborhood, reduce vandalism, deter crime, maintain property values, and prevent blight in your neighborhood.

The Board of Trustees appoints township residents to the five-member Board of Zoning Appeals and Zoning Commission. Appeals to the Zoning Resolution, such as variances and conditional uses, are heard by the Board of Zoning Appeals. Changes to the Zoning Resolution, including text and map amendments, are heard by the Zoning Commission.  For more information on the Board of Zoning Appeals and Zoning Commission, and their applicable forms, click here.
