ORDINANCES ARE ONLINE!

Souderton Borough ordinances are online for easier accessibility to residents. 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. This ordinance 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.
