NEWTON TOWNSHIP IS SEEKING APPLICANTS FOR THE POSITION OF ALTERNATE ON THE NEWTON TOWNSHIP ZONING COMMISSION
PROPOSED ANNEXATION OF 440.112 ACRES OF LAND IN NEWTON TOWNSHIP AND BRACEVILLE TOWNSHIP BY THE CITY OF NEWTON FALLS
On December 28, 2016, a petition was filed by the City of Newton Falls to annex 440.112 acres of land from Newton and Braceville Townships through a Type 2 Expedited Annexation process. Opposition to the proposed annexation was filed by both Newton and Braceville Townships with the Board of County Commissioners who make the final determination of acceptance or denial of the annexation according to law and procedure. On February 8, 2017. the Commissioners allowed testimony at their meeting from legal counsel representing each entity. After hearing all arguments in favor of and opposing the proposed annexation and following the recommendation of their legal counsel, Commissioners unanimously denied the annexation petition citing that all owners had not signed the petition and an island of unannexed property would be created by approving the proposal. There are seven requirements that must be met and, if proven, require Commissioners to approve a Type 2 Annexation according to ORC 709.023 and related statutes. Commissioners determined that the petitioners did not meet two of the seven requirements in the statute.
