FAIRFIELD COUNTY AFFIRMS ITS COMMITMENT TO EQUAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITY AND SUPPORTS THE ELIMINATION OF HOUSING DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF RACE, COLOR, RELIGION, SEX, HANDICAP, FAMILIAL STATUS, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN.

Resolution 2014-06.10.hh Fairfield County Board of Commissioners
Fairfield County has had an affirmative Fair Housing program since 1981.  The Regional Planning Commission provides services to the Board of County Commissioners in the implementation of the program.  The services stressed by the County are educational and included attending meetings throughout the County to present the fair housing laws, publishing news articles concerning fair housing, and distributing fair housing brochures.  In addition, the RPC responds directly to inquiries from individuals about possible fair housing violations.

The RPC staff explains that while there is an Ohio law governing the duties and responsibilities of both tenants and landlords, county governments have no authority to intervene.  Persons are advised to contact their personal attorney or the legal aid society.  A brochure explaining landlord-tenant rights and responsibilities under Ohio law has been prepared and is provided to tenants and landlords wishing to understand their rights and responsibilities.  If a complaint is about a fair housing violation, the person is referred to the Ohio Civil Rights Commission for its action.

Staff also gave presentations on Fair Housing and Landlord/Tenant laws before a number of township trustee and council meetings and other meetings during the year and distributed brochures at public buildings and agency offices.

In 2011, RPC staff completed an Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing for Fairfield County, which is required to be completed every five years.  The 2011 Analysis reviews various demographic data, housing characteristics, land use patterns, employment opportunities, and other similar data to identify existing conditions or barriers that limit housing choice.  The plan also includes a strategy and timeline for addressing each identified impediment.
