 Our Mission is to maintain the highest level of public safety and customer service in the administration of zoning code enforcement. The Union Township office of Fayette County is responsible for providing residents of the township with a safe environment in which to live, work and raise families. This is accomplished by enforcing building and zoning codes to protect people from the hazards of unsafe construction and unwanted neighborly uses.
 Drive a little less than an hour south from Columbus on US Rt. 62  or take US Rt. 35 east from Dayton; or from Cincinnati, you'll travel slightly over an hour north on US Rt. 22 and you'll  enter Union Township in Fayette County. Union Township surrounds the City of Washington and adjoins seven other townships in Fayette County. In addition to being a day’s drive from over 140 million people, Union Township  is a low cost, central location which makes the community ideal for servicing the Midwest, Northeast, and Great Lakes regions.
 Union Township, like most of Ohio, has been continuously inhabited for the last 12 or 13 thousand years as attested to by the many prehistoric artifacts that are commonly found. The first European settlers arrived around 1800. At that time this area was part of the Virginia Military District. Many of the first settlers were given land for service in the Revolutionary war. Today with a population of over 4000 and more than 125 businesses of various types, the township is a transition between the city and the rural with suburban areas intermixed with farms.
