In a very short meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 26, the Canfield Township Trustees discussed a plan to update the zoning regulations. They will have a company that specializes in it submit a plan to handle the changes.
"Our zoning resolutions book is not very user friendly," said Canfield administrator Keith Rogers. "It needs updating."
He said the company G2 Planning will visit the township this week and present two proposals to trustees on ways to handle the changes. They will offer ways to make it more user friendly as well as cleaning up questionable areas to make them more precise and understandable.
Trustees also declared the township's old broad-band radio system obsolete and thus approved it for recycling.
"We will be dropping it off at the township's electronics drive on Sept. 28 at the Canfield Fairgrounds," Rogers said.
He said the FCC had required townships and governments to switch to the new narrow band frequencies and the township had replaced the radios in its fleet of vehicles. Rogers said the old broad-band base unit that was at township hall will not be replaced, but cell phones will be used instead when it comes to contacting township road vehicles. The road vehicles will be able to talk to each other, however, by using the old radio tower at Township Hall.
"We had to make the change to conform to the new FCC rules," Rogers said.
