Joe Chrisman, Zoning Enforcement Officer, is responsible for the issuance of building permits and inspection of construction sites. If you are contemplating any improvements or alterations to your home, property, or business, contact Joe at the Township Building to discuss your plans and determine if any permits or approvals are required by the township. We recommend this before spending large sums of time, effort, and money on formal plans. Joe also assigns house numbers. Building Permits are required by the Township for new structures, some of which are storage sheds, greenhouses, tobacco drying sheds, fencing and roofing. They are also needed for remodeling and renovations as well as sign installation, highway occupancy and septic systems. Specific questions regarding building permits, etc. should be directed through the Zoning Officer, Joe Chrisman at 610-721-2561.

It is a good idea to call before you come to make sure he is here as sometimes he is out on inspections.
