The Board of Trustees of Amherst Township will hold a public hearing on proposed amendment to the Amherst Township Zoning Resolution map that was initiated by application of the property owner.  The hearing will be held at the Amherst Township Hall, 7530 Oberlin Road, on November 26, 2019 at 7:30 p.m.

The application of the proposed amendment will be available for examination for a period of ten days from November 15, 2019 to November 26, 2019 between the hours of 8:00 am and 11:00 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at the Amherst Township Hall, 7530 Oberlin Road, or at any other time in the outside bulletin board at the Township Hall.
