Community Development Drop Box Information

The Construction Official and the Building Regulations staff are responsible for the enforcement of building codes, and similar codes or ordinances related to commercial development in the township, as well as the issuance of certificates of occupancy.

As a condition to the issuance of the Certificates of Occupancy, a project must comply with all applicable codes and ordinances including, but not limited to, building codes, subdivision and setback requirements, and regulations pertaining to an entry sign board, fire department codes and regulations, applicable zoning laws, landscaping and parking requirements, obtaining appropriate curb cut permits and provisions for applicable sanitary sewer, water, storm drainage and other utilities. The issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy for a project is evidence that the conditions set forth have been satisfied.

New Certificate of Continued Occupancy (CCO) requirement for all residential home sales took effect on January 1, 2016. The documents are on the left hand menu.

Chapter 205-138 of the Township's Land Use Ordinance was amended in 2008. No structures shall be erected, restored, added to or structurally altered, and a building permit will not be issued, until a Zoning Permit has been issued.
