Manheim Township requires several permits and licenses for certain activities on Township streets and rights-of-way:
Street Opening Permit
A street opening permit is required if you are planning to do any type of work in all public rights-of-way and easements. A permit form is available at the Municipal Office for your completion. In addition to the permit form, a drawing of the work being performed and a $50.00 permit fee is required. It usually takes only a day or so to issue the permit. For those permits requiring concrete work, an inspection would be necessary prior to pouring of concrete. An inspection can be scheduled by contacting Phil Mellott at 569-6406 ext. 1115.
Tree Removal Permit
A permit is required for anyone who is interested in removing a tree located in the public right-of-way. A permit is only issued if the tree is in decline or decay as a potential hazard. The applicant must complete a form which is available at the Municipal Office. There is no fee for the permit. Should you have any additional questions contact Wendy Herr at 569-6406 ext. 1129.
A grading permit is required for all approved on-site improvements on the exterior of the building(s) including alterations to driveways outside of the public right-of-way.
Submit Application for Grading Permit with two site improvement plans attached. All site improvement plans for commercial projects, land development, subdivision and stormwater projects require the seal and signature of an individual properly registered in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to perform such duties. Submit the required fee. The fee is based on the contractual value of the site work.
