Hearing June 22 on Champion Township Plan

CHAMPION TOWNSHIP, Ohio – The Trumbull County Planning Commission will provide an overview of its update to Champion Township’s comprehensive plan at a public meeting June 22.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in the Technology Building, Room 117, on the Kent State University at Trumbull campus.

At the meeting, planning commission staff will explain the purpose, origin and highlights of the plan, which is in its final stages.

“Planning for the needs of a community, instead of reacting to them, can eliminate chronic problems, save tax dollars and reduce duplication of services,” said Trish Nuskievicz, executive director of the planning commission, in announcing the meeting.

A design for the township-owned 80-acre parcel on state Route 5, just south of Champion High School, will be unveiled at the meeting.

“We are committed to using this property to the benefit of today’s residents as well as future residents. Champion Township has a bright future and we believe the well thought out development of this property will lead to it becoming an area of which we can all be proud,” said Bob Farmer, chairman of the township ‘s board of trustees.
