The Zoning Officer is responsible for the enforcement of the Township's various zoning ordinances. He also must approve most residential and commercial alterations to real estate. These alterations would include fences, decks, generator's, central air conditioning units, pools, additions to buildings, or commercial change in uses. Zoning permits are required for these and other projects.
Please remember that when you are building a pool at your residence you need a zoning permit for the pool along with a zoning permit for a fence which is required per state regulations.
If you contemplating any changes to your real estate, we suggest you contact the Zoning Officer for further information.
The Township's entire Zoning Code can be found on-line at Township Code Book, under Title 165.
