The ordinance is based upon and intended to give effect to the vision, policies, goals and objectives set forth in the Joint Comprehensive Plan for Southwestern Berks County and is intended to promote public health, safety, and the general welfare. The ordinance divides the municipalities into various zoning districts with regulations for each district.
Each municipality has their own zoning officers and zoning hearing boards. Contact information for these officials can be found under Municipal Profiles
. Questions regarding the Zoning Ordinance and regulations contained therein must be directed to the zoning officer for the appropriate municipality, not the Berks County Planning Commission staff. For ease of use, users should download all Articles and maps.
