The township Zoning Inspector is Tom Turner. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Zoning Inspector administers compliance with the township Zoning Resolution and issues zoning permits. All plans and drawings for new home construction, home additions, site development, accessory buildings, barns and accessory structures such as swimming pools must be submitted to the Zoning Inspector for his initial review. If the Zoning Inspector finds the application to be in compliance, he will issue a permit. If he finds the application to not be in compliance, the applicant may appeal his decision to the Board of Zoning Appeals. The Zoning Inspector also can refer an application to the BZA if he is uncertain of compliance issues. Further details about the Zoning Inspector’s authority can be found in the provisions of the township Zoning Resolution. After the Zoning Inspector issues a zoning permit, the applicant must obtain a building permit from the Building Inspector.
