Access Management & Driveways for New Lot Splits
In compliance with the Lorain County Commissioners’ passage of the Lorain County "Access Management Regulations", Amherst Township passed the following resolution.
The Lorain County Access Management Regulations require an access permit be issued for any new lot splits. The Lorain County Engineers Office will issue these permits on both Township and County Roads. The access permit will be mainly concerned with sight distances.
(See the Lorain County Access Management "application" and "permit".)
The property owner must also obtain a driveway permit before constructing a driveway. The Lorain County Engineers Office will issue "County Road" Driveway permits and Amherst Township will issue "Township Road" Driveway permits.
