BZA Approves Variance To Allow Home Owner To Remain In Home While New One Is Built
The Suffield Township Board of Zoning Appeals met on Tuesday October 2nd to consider a request from James and Jill Scovern to remain in their home at 2107 State Route 43 while a new house is built. This would violate the rules of the Zoning Resolution and the principle of having more than one residential dwelling on a lot. The Board of Zoning Appeals made quick work of the issue and after just a few inquiries by the board members voted 5-0 to allow the variance. Board member Pete Einloth made the motion to allow the variance and Vickie Vincent seconded the measure.

License Plate Renewals
When buying new license plates, or renewing them, be sure the registrar at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles knows that you live in Suffield Township. If you simply state your address as Mogadore, the road tax funds, which should go to Suffield Township, will go to Mogadore Village, due to your zip code. Keep your tax money in the township!

Wingfoot Lake State Park is Suffield's only park. It was opened by the Ohio State Parks & Recreation Department in 2009. Goodyear had operated the park since the 1960's as a private playground for its employees and for corporate retreats. As the company footprint grew smaller in the Akron area Goodyear decided to close the park in 2006. To learn more about the park, such as rental of the facilities, visit the park's website: http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/wingfootlake
The historic Suffield Town Hall can be rented by residents and non-residents for various events.
