Galloway Townships Community Development Department administers and regulates development of the Township. The Townships Master Plan provides direction and guidance for the growth, preservation and land use decisions. A good comprehensive plan recognizes the needs of the municipality; the municipalities relationship to neighboring communities, the County, State and other regional agencies; and existing constraints and opportunities such as circulation patterns, environmental conditions and development patterns; and includes projections and anticipated development trends. The overriding purpose of the Master Plan should create safe and decent communities.
The Community Development is comprised of four distinct entities, Construction, Planning/Zoning and Code Enforcement. This department enforces the Code of the Township of Galloway, the Land Management Ordinance, and State Codes, through the permitting process. The Community Development office also processes all applications appearing before our Planning and Zoning Boards.
