The Mount Joy Borough Planning Commission is proposing amendments to the historic buildings and historic preservations section of the Mount Joy Borough Zoning Ordinance, in an effort to establish a preservation procedure that safeguards potentially historically significant buildings and structures, and to ensure they are not demolished. Please note the proposed ordinance only regulates demolition and does not affect other alterations or additions to properties.

The Mount Joy Borough Planning Commission believes that by establishing amendments to this section of the Zoning Ordinance, as well as updating the current Mount Joy Borough Registry of Historic Buildings, the character and historic significance of the Borough can be preserved.

We can be very thankful that many buildings from our town’s past still remain.  However, without Zoning Ordinance amendments, these buildings could be lost through future demolitions.  These proposed amendments will help to guide the Borough in making sure that historic character remains.

The Mount Joy Borough Planning Commission is requesting that any property owner that would like their property to be considered for inclusion on the Historic Resource Registry, complete the Historic Resource Request Form.

The Mount Joy Borough Planning Commission will be discussing these proposed amendments at their regular scheduled meeting on Wednesday, April 8, 2015, at the Mount Joy Borough Office at 7:00 P.M.
