Mission

Operating as a combined planning and zoning board, the Borough of Palmyra Land Use Board (LUB) is intended to: facilitate development of an appropriate mix of uses; protect, enhance and preserve our physical environment; conserve public resources; and shape our community’s character by implementing provisions of the Land Use Ordinance. We strive to enhance each citizen’s quality of life through long range planning by coordinating and guiding appropriate development.

Overview

The LUB works with the residential and business communities to improve the quality of life and living environment through supporting sustainable growth. The LUB accomplishes this through maintaining and enforcing the provisions of the Master Plan and periodically updating the Land Use Ordinance.

Working hand in hand with the LUB, the Zoning Official provides regulatory enforcement of the Land Use ordinances. It is through the enforcement of our comprehensive zoning, subdivision, and flood plan ordinances, as well as related Borough administrative codes, that we achieve our mission goals.

The uses of land are regulated through a permitting process whereby applicants identify anticipated uses and structural setbacks and the department ensures compliance with the applicable codes.
