Warren Township Trustees have filed a lawsuit against the owner of a recovery house claiming it violates the single-family residential zoning classification in that area. 

In Trumbull County Common Pleas Court, Warren Township Trustees and Norman Ashley, Warren Township Zoning Inspector filed a suit against FSSH Holdings II, LLC of Akron and its statutory agent, Scott Wilkes.

The court document claims the residence, used as a recovery house, is located at 4015 Leavitt Drive in a residentially-zoned area within the township. 

The suit says the property has been developed with a single-family, residential structure and historically has been used for a single-family residence.

According to the lawsuit, FSSH is currently using the property for purposes of "recovery housing". 

The suit says the "recovery housing" use of the property includes transient housing for five to 10 unrelated individuals, typically staying or less than 30 days at the location. 

According to Warren Township Zoning Resolution, short-term transient housing does not conform to the single-family residential zoning classification.

The suit seeks an order to restrain FSSH from continuing the use of the property in violation of the residential zoning resolution.
