Zoning hearings in Pennsylvania

When someone intends to develop a property, they are generally required to go through a zoning hearing in the local municipality. At the hearing, decisions about the impending development can be made by a zoning board, which is typically comprised of members of the community. Neighbors who have questions or concerns about the land use or development are welcome to attend the hearing. The board can take all information into consideration and make a decision based upon the information presented by the applicant and the community. It is prudent to have an attorney present at the hearing to represent you, to ensure all of the requirements under Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code are met.
