Current Land Use and Zoning

Ridgelawn Estates is zoned Residential-Medium Density (R-MD) with a small portion dedicated to Commercial-Office/Retail (C-OR).

The Residential-Medium Density (R-MD) District is established to accommodate single-family & two-family residential dwellings at existing densities in the areas so defined. The object of the regulations in this District is to maintain the suburban character of the area and to discourage large concentrations of intensive development.

The Commercial-Office Retail (C-OR) is established to create an environment primarily, but not exclusively, for the development of well located and designed office building sites to accommodate professional offices, sales offices, non-profit organizations and limited commercial activities ancillary to the office uses, including provision for some retail use. This District does not permit large-scale retail establishments or other similar high intensity retail and service uses.


Neighborhood Ambassadors are essential to the success of any strong community. 

Neighborhood Ambassadors serve as a local point-person for information in your part of the Township. Ambassadors are charged with promoting improvements, identifying problems, and informing neighbors about beneficial services and programs.

Ambassadors may volunteer just a little bit of free time, or choose to devote significant efforts toward neighborhood projects that connect neighbors. Organize a block party or help build community by chatting over the fence.

Neighborhood Ambassadors receive ongoing support and guidance from the Township Administration and the Department of Community and Economic Development.

By building a team of neighborhood-level leaders, the cumulative impact of this positive force will expand. Ultimately, the neighbors who volunteer as Ambassadors lay the groundwork for lasting excellence and long-term community pride.
