  20. Important Note for Property Owners and Applicants
    The following may not pertain to everyone. It will only pertain to individuals or parties that will need to seek some type of relief from their proposed Use. The following is for information purposes only. The formal zoning determination from the Planning department will clearly state if you need to seek relief. If you desire to seek relief and make a formal application before the Zoning Hearing Board or Municipal Council, upon the Planning Department’s receipt of said application will you be notified if you are in compliance with Resolution 14-103. If found to be in compliance of 04-103, your application will be accepted and you may appear before the Zoning Hearing Board or Municipal Council. If you (or the property owner) are not in compliance with 04-103, your application will be denied.

    As per Resolution 04-103, if as a result of this zoning application, an individual or party desires to seek relief before either the Zoning Hearing Board or Municipal Council, then said individual or party must be in compliance with all of the Municipal laws, Resolutions, Ordinances, Rules and Regulations to be entitled for any special relief, assistance or special ruling and/or legislation.

    What the above means: If the property owner or the applicant are in violation of any Municipal law or regulation, they may not go before the Zoning Hearing Board or Municipal Council until they are in compliance with this law or regulation. Example: If an individual owes rental fees to the Municipality through the Building and Code department and needs to seek a Special Exception for another property that they own within the Municipality, this individual will not be able to seek relief until all rental fees are paid in full.
