1. Establish and amend the Township Zoning Resolution.
2. Establish and amend the Official Zoning Map.
Those who attend the public hearings are requested to sign in.
Speakers wishing to testify must proceed to the podium and identify themselves prior to speaking by giving their name and address.
The applicant is permitted to speak first, all in favor of the requested amendment will then speak. All opposed will be given the opportunity to speak. When many wish to speak regarding the same position, it is suggested a spokesman be appointed by the group to express the group’s viewpoint and concern in an effort to avoid repetition.
Interested parties are invited to view any documents discussed at the Commissioner’s table. Meetings will start at 5:00 p.m. and will close by 10:00 p.m. Any case in the process of review will be rescheduled for the next available meeting date. In the event, additional notice will not be given.
