Warrington Township Zoning/SALDO Ad Hoc Committee Meetings

Warrington Township holds public Zoning/SALDO Ad Hoc Committee meetings on the first and third Monday of each month (Holidays and unforeseen circumstances may alter schedule) at 3:00PM in the Shirley Yannich Public Meeting Room at the Warrington Township Administration Building.

The Committee is composed a member of the Board of Supervisors, 2 representatives from the Planning Commission, 2 representatives from the Zoning Hearing Board, the Township Solicitor, the Township Engineer, the Assistant Township Manager, and the Zoning Officer.

The Township has partnered with the Bucks County Planning Commission to work with the Committee to review and update the Zoning and Subdivision and Land Development (SALDO) ordinances. A complete rewrite of both ordinances was completed in 2021 and 2022, but amendments are needed on a regular basis to ensure the Township is managing land development and use in a legal and responsible manner.

The public is welcome to attend these meetings to provide their input or to learn about land development and zoning.


Q&A –

Q. If a new business or development project is planned near my home, what is the process for receiving information and can I contact you for updates?

A. We encourage interested folks to monitor our website for specific matters coming before the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors.

The agendas for the Board of Supervisors and for the Warrington Township Planning Commission are normally posted on the township website by close of business on the Friday preceding a meeting.  Interested persons can always contact the township for information prior to any public meeting.

Under a state law known as the Municipalities Planning Code, an owner of a tract or parcel of land located within Warrington Township or an owner of the mineral rights in a tract or parcel of land within the township may request that the township provide written or electronic notice of a public hearing which may affect such tract or parcel of land.

Electronic notice shall be required only if an owner within the township has made a written request that notice be sent electronically and has supplied the municipality with an electronic address prior to a public hearing.  An owner within the township making the request and supplying an electronic address may at any time notify the municipality that the owner of the tract or parcel of land located within the municipality or the owner of the mineral rights in the tract or parcel of land within the municipality no longer will accept electronic notice, and, in that event, the municipality may no longer provide electronic notice.  The owner within the township who has requested electronic notice shall be solely responsible for the accuracy and functioning of the electronic address provided to the municipality. The municipality shall not be responsible or liable if the owner does not provide to the municipality notice of any changes to the owner’s electronic address.

Mailed notice shall be required only if an owner within the township has made a written request that the notice be mailed and has supplied the municipality with a stamped, self-addressed envelope prior to a public hearing.  An owner within the township who has requested mailed notices shall be solely responsible for the number, accuracy and sufficiency of the envelopes supplied. The municipality shall not be responsible or liable if the owner does not provide to the municipality notice of any changes in the owner’s mailing address.
