The Zoning Ordinance contains various regulations relative to land development within the Township and is crafted to regulate the intensity of land development, to ensure compatibility among land uses and to promote orderly and consistent development practices.

In addition, the zoning ordinance contains various regulations to promote health, safety and enhance the visual characteristics of the community such as landscaping, woodland replacement, lighting, driveway spacing, setbacks and parking requirements.
