Before Applying for a Permit

The first steps to take prior to submitting an application:

  • Visit the Township’s Website or Municipal Building to review the Township Code.
  • Visit the Township’s Website or Municipal Building to review permit fees and obtain a copy of all necessary Permit Applications.
  • Call the Township with questions, if necessary. 
  • Completely fill out the Permit Application(s) and review the Application Completeness checklist to ensure you have all supporting documentation.

It is recommended that projects requiring multiple permits are submitting in the following order:

  1. Zoning Permit
  2. Drainage Permit
  3. Building Permit

While all permits may be submitted simultaneously, obtaining Zoning approval prior to submitting additional permit applications can help to avoid delays and ensure project plans already meet Zoning requirements reducing plan revisions for other permit applications. Additionally, if a project requires Zoning approval, this must be obtained prior to release of any approved Drainage and/or Building permits. Likewise, if a project requires a Drainage permit, this approval must be obtained prior to release of a Building permit.
