The mission of Whitewater Township is to maintain a sense of
Whitewater Township was established in 1803, the same year that Ohio became a State. Our boundaries are defined by Dearborn County, Indiana on the west; Harrison and Crosby Townships to the north; and the Great Miami River on the south and east. The township is comprised of 26.50 square miles, or nearly 17,000 acres of land ranging from rolling hills to flat bottom land.
Three established communities located within the Township include Miamitown, Hooven, and Elizabethtown. The population of Whitewater Township is approximately 5600 and growing. Our township offers a small town/rural lifestyle, yet enjoys the benefits of the larger metropolitan areas that surround us through easy access to major thoroughfares. Any location in the township is within a short drive to I-74, I-275, or U.S. 50.
Whitewater Township contains a balanced blend of old, established communities and areas of recent development. Many families have lived in the township for generations, while others have more recently discovered the benefits the area has to offer.
Township structure and responsibilities are governed by Ohio State law. The governing Board of Trustees of every Ohio township consists of three members, each serving in a staggered four year term. The Fiscal Officer is also an elected position in the Township and serves a four year term.
Township Administration also includes the Administrator and the Office Manager, who help the Trustees manage the day to day operation of the Township.
Whitewater Township operates three departments, Fire, Public Works, and the Community / Senior Center.
