Plan Review & System Testing Fees

Liberty Township continues to see significant commercial growth. With this continued growth, the Liberty Township Fire Department's (LTFD) staff has continued to see an increase in plan reviews, fire suppression system reviews and fire alarm plan reviews.

The Ohio Fire Code requires the fire department plan review and approve new and modified commercial plans within the Township. The fee structure below is being implemented to help offset the cost of the review process.

The Liberty Township Planning & Zoning Department will collect the following fees: New/modified commercial and multi-family construction plans for review, plan revision fees and tent/canopy fees. All other fees will be collected by the LTFD.

For questions related to the new fee schedule, contact Chief Ethan Klussman by email at eklussman@liberty-township.com or 513-759-7530.
