Zoning Regulations

The purpose of zoning regulations is to promote orderly growth within the Borough. This is done by creating different zones where similar uses are grouped. Additional requirements include lot coverage, setbacks from lot lines, minimum number of parking spaces and more. Zoning Permits are required so the Borough Zoning Officer can ensure these requirements are being met. The permit application is available at the Borough office during regular business hours or may be downloaded here.
The Zoning Hearing Board exists per the PA Municipalities Planning Code to provide relief from the requirements of the zoning ordinance under certain special circumstances. Here is a very short summary regarding actions of the Zoning Hearing Board. For more information contact the Zoning Officer during regular office hours or via email.
