Lower Macungie Township has adopted a progressive and advanced zoning ordinance which is designed accommodate the Township’s anticipated future growth, in-fill and build-out development and reuse of its villages, corridors and commercial centers. Sound zoning ensures high quality of life for township residents, economic strength and high quality development and redevelopment.
When relief from these regulations is sought or necessary, the Township Zoning Hearing Board convenes to deliberate on potential relief and variances per Pennsylvania State Law.
If you are a resident looking to improve your property with a deck, patio, fence, shed, pool or addition, township zoning also applies to your lot. Please call the Township Zoning Officer who will be happy to assist you with the steps and information you may need to reach your goals.
