The Residential-High Density (R-HD) District is established to accommodate single-family residential dwellings with the objective of permitting a higher density of population where centralized sewer and water facilities are provided, and where positioning of homes can be used to buffer higher and lower density uses.
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 Residential-Open Space District, is established to achieve the following purposes:
To preserve and protect the values of distinctive geologic, topographic, botanic, historic and scenic areas;
To protect the ecological balance of an area;
To conserve natural resources, such as river valley and tracts of forest land; and,
To reduce the problems created by intensive development of areas having excessively high water tables, organic or other soils unsuitable for most types of urban development, or which are subject to flooding, or which are topographically unsuited for urban type 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.
