Proposed Zoning Ordinance and SALDO

A new zoning ordinance and SALDO are proposed for Eldred Township.

Complementary ordinances are also being considered in Ross, Chestnuthill and Jackson Townships. Upon approval by the Boards of Supervisors of each of these townships, the proposed ordinances would establish certain regional uses, each of which is specifically assigned to one or more of those four townships. Each township to which a regional use is assigned must provide for that use in its zoning ordinance; those to which a particular regional use is not assigned will not have it. The regional uses and the townships to which they are assigned are set out in Section 400.4 of the zoning ordinance.

The proposed Eldred ordinances are available for review during regular business hours at the Township Building, or by viewing the attachment provided below. 

A joint meeting/hearing was held on Thursday, March 27 for the purpose of public comment and input on new Zoning and SALDO ordinances for participating West End townships. The hearing was held at the West End Firehouse and was attended by officials and residents from Eldred, Ross, Chestnuthill, and Jackson Townships.  After some discussion on a number of issues and changes, planning officials felt that more time was necessary to allow township residents to review the proposed changes. For this reason, it was decided to reschedule the joint meeting/hearing for Thursday evening, May 1, at the West End Firehouse beginning at 7:00 p.m.
