  • Hauling in or removing more then 10 cubic yards of material within 300 feet of the shoreline.
  • Construction of any foundation.

Permits are not needed for the following:

  • Fences
  • Replacing windows, doors, roofs (as long as height does not increase by more then 2 feet), ect.

Greenwood Township also has the authority to issue Conditional Use Permits and grant Variances.  Conditional Use permits are uses of property, such as a business, that require a special permit.  Variances can be granted when a property owner seeks relief from Ordinance.
