If you plan to disturb the earth, you are required by PA law to notify the underground utility companies of your intent to do so. This is a FREE service. Notification occurs by calling PA One Call at “8-1-1” or 1-800-242-1776. You can call 24 hours a day, every day of the year. They will then notify the nearby utility companies of your intent to dig. The utility companies are responsible to mark where their underground lines are located with colored flags, paint or chalk. This ensures that you do not damage one of their lines.

No. For these projects you need to obtain a Zoning Permit. The fee for a Zoning Permit is $75.00. When applying, you will also need to submit a copy of a plot plan of your property, and draw on where the fence or structure is going to be located. Fences can be put right on your property line, but we advise that you leave enough space so you can work on the other side, if needed, so as not to trespass on your neighbor’s property. For accessory structures, you must abide by the setbacks for your Zoning District, as set forth in the Zoning Ordinance, Table III-B. In all Zoning Districts other than “Village Residential”, you may deduct an additional 5′ off of the setbacks for the side and rear property lines. NOTE: Although Swimming Pools and Hot Tubs are considered accessory structures, they would require a Building Permit in lieu of a Zoning Permit. Accessory structures over 1,001 square feet would also require a Building Permit.
