Attention Residents & Homeowners:

It is the responsibility of the homeowner to install and maintain a proper building number sign in compliance with the requirements of Ordinance NO. 2010-101, also referred to as "Jackson Township E-911 Street and Building Sign Ordinance." Please see link below for further details. We urge current residents and homeowners who already have signs up to check if it meets these requirements.

Short-Term Rentals

Jackson Township Short-Term Rental Ordinance has been in existence since July of 2018.  This ordinance permits short-term rentals in all areas of the Township except where Owner's Associations do not permit short-term rentals.   Operating, advertising or booking short-term rentals is illegal without a valid permit.  Permits, once issued, are renewed annually. 

Scroll down to view and download guidance documents that are needed to understand the process and to get started with applying for the permit.  The Ordinance is 10 pages long. We recommend reading the ordinance and then completing the permit application.  The fillable form works best with Adobe.  A guidance document, updated regularly,  is also available to assist with compiling the required information. See below for all forms and documents.
We strongly encourage applicants to submit the Permit Application and Supporting Documents via email, as attachments (pdf format), to zoning@jacksontwp-pa.gov and rmiller@jacksontwp-pa.gov.
The initial non-refundable permit fee is $ 400, pay to 'Jackson Township'.  This fee may be mailed or hand-delivered.  The annual renewal fee is $100. Permits can be transferred to a new owner as well; this fee is $200. Permit review can begin after the required fee is received.

Once an application is deemed complete (all required paperwork and fee), our office will contact the owner or agent with instructions for scheduling the inspection.
  Up to two inspections are included with the permit fee for an initial permit and one inspection is included with the permit fee to transfer a permit.  An additional $70 per inspection will be incurred if additional inspections are needed to demonstrate compliance.  After a satisfactory inspection, the permit will be issued within a short period of time.   
Most importantly, please know the permit process can take one to two months.  Please be patient.
Suggestions for updates on this web page are welcome.  Email is encouraged.  Thank You for your interest!
