Unfortunately, there are some in our community who either cannot or will not take good care of their property because of a variety of reasons too numerous or complex to list here. The land becomes blighted by junk, pollution, or deteriorating and unsafe structures; such sites can be a danger to the community by being attractive nuisances, and actually can be a health threat.
At best, these properties are simply unsightly, detrimental to property values and not in keeping with our overall Master Plan. At worst, they are often health hazard, a clear danger to humans, wildlife and/or the environment.
The Township does have a long-standing "Junk" Ordinance and employs an enforcement officer, both of which exist to assist you should your neighborly approach with concerns and clean up suggestions fall short of their goal.
