New Building Permit Process

Effective June 22nd

The Corona Virus has changed the way that we conduct business.  Companies have to be agile and adapt to the new normal, embracing the use of technology to ensure continuity of operations.  This allows companies to remain viable within their industry, provide customer service and protect the health of their customers and employees.


Accordingly, the Township has developed a new tab on the Township’s web page that automates the building permit process and moves it to an online platform.


Beginning Monday June 22, 2020, all building permits will be obtained using the online process, including payment. 


To use the process, go to


Find the tab on the web page named “Building and Zoning". This is designed to allow our residents to complete, receive and pay for their permit on line. You can find the new tab by highlighting:



            You will see a drop down menu that says   “BUILDING & ZONING”

            Click on “BUILDING & ZONING”

            You will see a screen that says:  “HOW TO OBTAIN A PERMIT”

            Follow the step by step procedures from there.


We know that as with all new processes there will be bumps during implementation so please

reach out to:


Jeff Burkhart, Zoning and Codes Officer at 717-944-1803 or 717-682-5566 cell or via e-mail at  


Ed K at 717-944-1803 or 717-315-0011 cell or via e-mail at


and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have.


We believe the online process will help us be more efficient relative to building permit processing and we look forward to working with you as we implement this new process.


Sincerely and Respectfully,


Jeff Burkart
