Northumberland Planning Commission To Hold Public Hearing

The Northumberland County planning commission will hold a public hearing next Thursday, January 18th regarding a boathouse ordinance. Zoning defines a boathouse as “a structure built over a tidal waterway on pilings that shelters a boat by complete or partial enclosure.” Suggested changes include wording that would add “boathouse canopies” to define a metal framed structure with a fabric canopy over a tidal waterway that is attached to pilings that partially shelters a boat to prevent people from simply putting a canopy on their existing dock.
