The Brimfield Township Zoning Commission created and established in 1960 by the Board of Township Trustees in accordance and under Sections 519.01 to 510.99 of the Ohio Revised Code. Authority and Responsibility of the Zoning Commission
 
The Commission is comprised of five [5] members appointed by the Board of Township Trustees. Each Member is appointed for a five [5] year term. Each term is staggered to have one [1] term ending each calendar year. Members may be reappointed by the Board of Township Trustees. The Board of Township trustees may also appoint two [2] alternate members for terms determined by the Board of Township trustees.

The Township Zoning Commission, in fall 2001, enacted a managed growth resolution for the Residential District to create a window of opportunity to review the Zoning Map and Zoning Resolutions and allow for updating community planning. That time frame allowed for the Township to ensure adequate services could be delivered to its citizens. The Township Trustees approved the new resolution, effective January 5, 2002.
