Zoning Information and Worksheet
The following information should be helpful to answer questions and to start the process in obtaining building/demolition permits and meeting zoning requirements within the Borough of Waynesburg.
1. You must file with the Borough at least (5) weeks prior to your need for a zoning permit. The reason for the time is, if a variance is needed the municipality will need 30 days to advertise the variance.
All applications must be filled out completely to ensure a timely response to your request. Omissions/deletions will extend the application process. Please take care to complete each section of the application fully.
Application to file: Zoning Application
2. After your application has been filed with the Zoning Officer, you will be advised of its approval or rejection within 5 days. If the application is approved you will be issued a Zoning Certificate. If the application is rejected then you will need to apply for a variance or special exemption before the board. You will need to complete a Zoning Appeals Form and submit same to the Borough.
Application to file: Zoning Appeals Form
Your Appeals Form/request will be advertised as a legal notice, the address in question will be posted and a Hearing Date will be scheduled. You will be informed of the date of the Appeal before the Board. The Board will review your Zoning Application and the actions of the Zoning Officer. The Board may grant you a variance or special exemption; thus approving your Zoning Application and advising you to start your project.
