Why did the Township adopt a Property Maintenance Code?
Key to the preservation of property values and the maintenance of neighborhood integrity and attractiveness is property maintenance. The Township simply had no mechanism to address the issue of building condition and maintenance. Adopting a Property Maintenance Code, in conjunction with existing zoning and nuisance abatement, gives the Township the tools necessary to address these issues.
