A Message from the Jackson Township Trustees

Effective “12-01-2021”

In our effort to balance the continuation of service, while maintaining the health and safety of our residents and employees during the COVID-19 crisis—the following updates have been made: 

Public Works (Park and Highway): The Jackson Parks Division has reopened all of the parks. Please use the walking/jogging track. Baseball/softball fields and tennis courts reopened on May 26, 2020, with some limitations (see Ohio Department of Health’s Order for Facial Coverings throughout the State of Ohio). The basketball courts and soccer/lacrosse/football sports fields have also reopened.  We continue to monitor Governor DeWine and Ohio Department of Health’s directives on sector specific operating requirements and will make adjustments as information is made available. Please feel free to exercise and enjoy the fresh air, but remember to follow social distancing guidelines, wear a facial covering, applicable park regulations, and sector specific operating requirements (sports, sport leagues and outdoor activities) and guidelines for the activity you are engaging. If you have any questions, please use the contact information below:

Jackson Township will continue to follow the orders of Ohio Governor DeWine and Ohio Director of Public Health. The Township’s Zoning Department will monitor businesses for compliance. If a possible violation is observed, then the appropriate authorities will be notified for enforcement. 

The Board of Trustees understands this is a difficult and trying time in many ways for all of us and the personal sacrifice that each of us is making.  The Administration is here to help and we ask for your assistance in return. Jackson Township is a fantastic community and we will get through this by working together.
