AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ORDINANCE NO. 133, CHAPTER 210, ZONING, ARTICLE II, DISTRICT REGULATIONS, SECTION 210-21, LOT AND YARD REQUIREMENTS, TO REVISE THE FRONT YARD SET BACK IN THE MIXED USE DISTRICT AND DIRECTING THAT ALL INCONSISTENT CODE REFERENCES ARE HEREIN REVISED, AND PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY AND REPEAL OF PRIOR INCONSISTENT ORDINANCES.
Legal Summary: This amendment resolves a legislative inconsistency between the designated Area of Joint Municipal Jurisdiction [Ord. 2016-142] and the zoning ordinance with regard to the front yard setback. This amendment resolves that conflict within the Mixed Use District, protecting the Township as well as the developers from the application of different standards for land development. The change remains consistent with the zoning district and the comprehensive plan.

The Township will however follow the current ‘worker safety orders’ in place by reducing the gathering capacity for municipal business to 50% of the building’s occupancy limit of 155 and will only use ZOOM for the Board of Supervisor’s Business Meetings, normally scheduled on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM.

DOES YOUR HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE COMPANY KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE?
The fire department is asking the question. Everyone living in Potter Township has either a Monaca or Aliquippa zip code. A small portion of your insurance premium goes to your local fire department. Unfortunately, your mailing address does not show what township you live in. Thus, Monaca or Aliquippa fire departments may be receiving these monies. We ask that you contact your insurance company and let them know that you reside in Potter Township so we may receive these funds. We thank you in advance.
