Code Enforcement FAQ

The Harborcreek Township Code Enforcement Office is dedicated to promoting and maintaining a safe and desirable living and working environment for all. The staff are committed to serving the residents by administering fair and impartial enforcement efforts.

The goal is always to work with the resident(s) to come into compliance. However, with every effort given to the resident(s), at times, the violation becomes a legal matter. Mostly the resident was not aware of the ordinance, so it becomes an educational communication.
Complaint-Driven System
The program operates under the general premise that most violators do not know they are in a violation of the ordinance. It is the code enforcement officer’s duty to educate the resident. Most residents want to come into compliance.

Projects that require a zoning permit are:

  • New Structures
  • Additions
  • Garages (attached and detached)
  • Pole Barn
  • Decks/Porches
  • Swimming Pools (permanent)
  • Storage Sheds (over 120 sq. ft. or a 2nd shed on property)
  • Accessory Structures (over 120 sq. ft.)
  • Pre-fabricated structures
  • Mobile Homes
  • Structure Relocations
  • Structural Changes
  • Non-Residential Renovations
  • Signs
  • Demolitions

Non-Residential Electrical, Mechanical, and Plumbing

The same reason we have laws. To provide a safe & pleasant community to live in.

Contact the code enforcement office to ensure the best way to come into compliance.

As the new property owner you now own the violation even if you did not create the violation. We would be unable to address the violation with the previous owner since they no longer own the property.

Because we had received a complaint of your violation. Two wrongs do not make a right.

Possibly, if you show proof that you have come into compliance prior to the hearing and show why you ignored the letters asking for compliance.

This depends on the case. Anywhere between 10-30 days.

Any motor vehicle that is wrecked or partially dismantled, unregistered, or uninspected. Parked vehicles with flat tires.

A person can stay in an RV in a driveway for up to 2 weeks but cannot live in it indefinitely.
