Engineering Information

The Engineering Services Department oversees the Engineering, Planning, Zoning, Fire Prevention Bureau and Construction Code Departments. This department also administers the Planning Board and Board of Adjustment. Close coordination is also maintained with the Agricultural Task Force, Environmental Commission, Shade Tree Commission, and other Township Departments.

The Engineering Department administers all land use and construction work in the Township. The land use reviews range from an individual resident's zoning concern to the review of large-scale residential and commercial projects. The site inspection staff reviews all development and Township construction. The Engineering staff provides in-house designs for road maintenance, drainage, and bikeway/sidewalk programs. Township tax and GIS data maps are also maintained by Engineering Department personnel.
