Souderton Borough Council has considered and enacted over seven hundred ordinances governing a vast variety of matters from designating streets, traffic laws, creating a police department, setting annual budgets and tax rates, building codes, property maintenance, use of public parks and public spaces to name only a few. Most of the borough ordinances are codified and maintained in specific categories for easy reference by a municipal consulting firm known as General Code. This firm has completed the update to our codification of ordinances to make this entire library of ordinances available online. Please Click Here to view the library of ordinances.
One major component of legislation is the Souderton Borough Zoning Ordinance, which establishes zoning districts throughout the Borough and permitted uses and other regulations governing the use of property. The Zoning Map and Zoning Ordinance is appended to this article for viewing or downloading.
The division and development of property within the Borough is governed by the provisions of the Souderton Borough Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance, most commonly referred to as SALDO. This ordinance is a comprehensive document governing procedures to create subdivisions of property and provides regulations for the development of property covering all aspects from utility construction, street construction, landscaping, stormwater management and even architectural standards in certain zoning districts. A copy of the SALDO regulations is also appended to this article.

Protect Our Water Supply
As storm water flows over roofs, across lawns, and down driveways, it picks up dirt, debris, and chemicals before entering storm drains. Storm drains then empties into the bodies of water we use for drinking, swimming, and fishing—our water supply. Project our water supply by helping to reduce the contaminants in our storm water.
- Use the Waste System Authority of Eastern Montgomery County’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program to dispose of hazardous household substances, such as used motor oil, cleaning supplies, and paint.
- Use pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides properly to prevent excess runoff.
- Pick up after pets and dispose of their waste properly. If left in your yard or at the park, pet waste can be carried into the storm sewer system or a stream by storm water runoff.
- Instead of washing your car in your driveway, take it to a commercial car wash, where the water is treated and recycled.
- Plant drought-tolerant, native plants and grasses in your garden. They often require less water, fertilizer, and pesticides.
