Batavia Township’s walking trail is about to get an upgrade. Later this fall 12 stations of exercise equipment will be placed along the 1.25 mile walking trail which was expanded last year. The stations will enable you to get a complete physical workout and will be free to the public. The stations will enable you to work on balance and flexibility, to work on core strength, and to strengthen various muscles. Most of the equipment will be ADA accessible and is suitable for ages 13 and up.
The cold winter days are nearly behind us and the forsythias will soon be in bloom. Perhaps you’re thinking about starting an outdoor spring project. Maybe a deck, a storage building, a fence or a swimming pool is something you’ve been considering. Many people are unaware that projects such as these require your acquisition of a zoning permit from Batavia Township and depending upon the scope of the project, possibly a building permit from Clermont County. Prior to your start of construction, the necessary permits must be obtained. It is wise to contact both the Zoning Department and the County Building Department while your project is still in the planning stage as certain setback requirements, size restrictions and building code regulations could result in significant revisions to your initial plans. To review the Township’s Zoning Resolution and the various requirements that apply to your particular project, merely click on the Planning and Zoning section of this web site and follow the highlighted link. You are also most welcome to stop by our office for a complete explanation of what will be required of you in order to obtain your permit. You can also speak with us by phone at 513-732-3888 or contact us through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be very happy to assist you by whatever method is most convenient for you. For information regarding the County’s requirements for construction projects, you can visit their web site at permit.clermontcountyohio.gov or call 513-732-7213.
