The Butler SWCD staff provides guidance and technical assistance to the Butler County Planning and Zoning Department by performing natural resource reviews for subdivisions. Additionally, we are available to conduct plan reviews for township planning and zoning departments. On an individual basis, our specialists can assist county residents with property purchasing due-diligence to help prospective landowners better understand environment-related limitations on a site.
