Zoning

The Zoning Office is often the first step in making modifications or changing the use on a particular site. The Zoning Office will review applications for compliance with the established Ordinances of the Township and issue Zoning Permits. It will additionally file and schedule Zoning Variance Applications with the Zoning Board of Adjustment.
