Property Buyer's Guide
Before you buy property in Mayfield Township, be sure to research the property and its surroundings. Here are some things to look for:
ZONING OF THE PROPERTY
AND SURROUNDING AREAS
Always assume that any type of development permitted by the zoning ordinance may occur. For example, if your property is located near vacant land zoned for commercial use, plan on the property being developed for any commercial use allowed by the zoning ordinance.
If a proposed development is located in the appropriate zoning district and meets all zoning ordinance requirements, the township must - by law - approve it. This applies to all types of development - from new homes to industrial parks.
LONG-RANGE PLAN (MASTER PLAN) OF THE AREA
A proposed rezoning that is consistent with the township’s long-range plan, may likely be approved. For example, a parcel of land currently zoned for residential use, but “master-planned” for future commercial use may be rezoned for any commercial use permitted by the zoning ordinance.
PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS
The township planning commission reviews all non-residential projects, special land use requests and rezonings. The planning commission does not review proposals for each new single family home constructed. New single-family homes, as long as they are constructed in the appropriate zoning district and meet all building code requirements, are permitted without planning commission approval.
