The study reported here examined the use of zoning for growth management in Ohio townships. Data were obtained from a survey of 252 township officials. The results showed that 59% of townships are using zoning, primarily due to citizen support. Zoned townships are using a variety of zoning techniques to assist in managing land use change and growth. Those townships without zoning cite a lack of growth and citizen interest as reasons for not using zoning.
