Zoning Violations

Code Enforcement officials are responsible for investigating illegal apartments, campers/trailers in residential zones, fences and signs and other zoning issues.

When making changes to the exterior of a building, residents and business owners need to be aware of Ordinance 347-136 which establishes when a certificate of appropriateness is required before work can begin.

The vitality of our neighborhoods is an important township priority. The quality of our surroundings benefits not only the significant investment we make in our homes, but also the community at large by keeping our neighborhoods attractive, safe and clean, and a wonderful place to live and work.
