Ms. Laurie Pinney, Zoning Inspector and Director of Planning.
The Zoning Inspector and Director of Planning is responsible to ensure the protection of health, safety and welfare of those living and working in Richfield Township. Most zoning regulations are a matter of common sense and help to make sure that people use their property in such a way that it is not detrimental to those living in the same area or the Township as a whole.
