Zoning and Subdivision Permits

The Code Enforcement Department is responsible for the management and coordination of the land use functions of the Township. It is charged with the duty of protecting the public’s health, safety and welfare. This is accomplished through the review and processing of land development and subdivision applications, insuring that the applicable ordinances of the Township are addressed.
