Pierce Township Zoning Resolution includes the following possible complaints:

Junk or Inoperable Vehicles:

One junk vehicle may be temporarily parked on a paved driveway in any yard, for a period of up to five days during a single month for the purposes of temporarily holding the vehicle until it can be transported off site or to storage, or to allow for a temporary time period for repairs.  The storage of junk motor vehicles (the keeping of the vehicle for more than five days) shall be permitted only in an enclosed structure.  As used in this section (Article 11: Vehicle Parking, Stacking and Loading), “junk motor vehicle” means a motor vehicle that meets all of the following criteria:

  1. Apparently inoperable, whether licensed or unlicensed
  2. Extensively damaged, including, but not limited to, any of the following: missing wheels, tires, engine, or transmission

General Debris/Garbage:

No abandoned, wrecked, dismantled, or disabled automobiles, trucks, trailers, aircraft, or discarded furniture, appliances, or other miscellaneous materials whether covered or not shall be permitted to remain anywhere on the premises.

Boat/Camper Location:

One trailer and/or boat per family may be parked in any district providing it is parked in the side or rear yard; and providing that no living quarters shall be maintained or any business conducted while such trailer is parked or stored.  A camping trailer and/or boat is not to be parked any closer than five feet to any property line, and the definition of a side yard is considered as that portion of the lot located behind a line tangent to the front of the dwelling. (Note: some properties have more than one front yard)

Corner Lot





Parking Vehicles in Yard:

For any residential use or parcel, off street parking shall be prohibited in the front yard with the exception of driveways providing access from the street to the parking area.  (Note: Front/Side/Rear yard see above diagram)

High Grass/Weeds:

Per ORC 505.87.  Clermont County Health District has regulations on High Weeds or you can file a complaint with Clermont County Health District.



You can only submit a zoning violation concern on Pierce Township Roads.
