There shall be a department of Zoning. The Zoning Officer shall enforce and administer the Zoning Ordinance, chapter 17.
Short Range Goals and Objectives
The zoning office currently uses a GIS computer mapping system to access some information.
Having some of this information "on line" for residents would be a welcomed benefit.
Long Range Goals and Objectives
The zoning office is the first step in reviewing the Land Use regulations of land within Hopewell Township. Researching the history of property as well as current regulations is a very time consuming process.
The goals of this office are to have a direct and readily accessible electronic file system for retrieving copies of plans, surveys, maps and resolutions. This would ultimately require scanning of old documents and the digital submission of new development applications.
