New online booking tool for planning

I’m pleased to report we are now offering online booking for those looking for general planning information.

Residents, builders, realtors, agents, consultants and businesses seeking information from the planning department can visit

Once on the web page, the customer can select a date and time for an appointment with a Township planner. After providing general information with respect to the nature of their inquiry, they will receive an email confirmation of their appointment time, followed by a reminder on the day of the appointment.
