This Memorandum was forwarded to me yesterday. It is Ordinance
changes proposed and that will indeed be adopted at a Township
Meeting before the end of the year. Are any of these changes
important, you might ask? It all depends on what you read into
them. I will tell you that the last item listed may be of
concern to any property owner that has non-conforming issues
with a property. I HIGHLY recommend the documentation of any
non-conforming use or building that does not comply with the
ordinances. Pictures, records, whatever you have. If you get on
the wrong side of these people, they well be making you take
down or stop what you are doing on your property.
The current zoning officer has never kept a record of
non-conforming properties, although according to the current and
many previous Zoning Ordinances, the Zoning Officer is REQUIRED
to do so. Now it will be your responsibility to prove your
property rights! I recommend you start protecting them now.
