Volunteers are needed!
There are any number of ways you can volunteer your time, knowledge and experience on behalf of your neighbors. Here are some Township volunteer committees that currently have openings:
The Board of Supervisors of the Township establish and create the Planning Commission by Ordinance 2012-02 and under the provisions of the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Code. The Commission consists of seven members who are appointed by the Board of Supervisors who serve for a specific term of office. The Planning Commission’s powers and duties are defined in Ordinance 2012-02.
Zoning Hearing Board
The Zoning Hearing Board currently has a vacancy in the “Alternate Member” position. The primary purpose of the Zoning Hearing Board is to help assure fair and equitable application and administration of the zoning ordinance by hearing appeals on the zoning officer’s determinations and by granting relief from the literal enforcement of the ordinance in certain hardship situations. The Zoning Hearing Board has a designated meeting date each month but only meet on an “as needed” basis.
Historic Commission reviews certain work being proposed to properties with historic value so as to maintain the historic aesthetic throughout West Pikeland.
