N.E.A.C.A.

The North East Area Code Administration was developed after the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania mandated the UCC “Uniform Construction Code".   The department is administered by Mr. Fritzer Shunk, our Building Code Official.  The new department was set into motion to better serve the North East area by still giving easy access to obtaining a building permit and securing the necessary paperwork.

Some examples of things that need a permit are: structural alterations, additions, new homes, out buildings over 1000 square feet and all commercial construction.  Normal home maintenance projects like shingle replacement, siding and hot water tanks do not require a permit or inspection.  If you have any questions or concerns whether you need a permit, please call the Township Office at 725-8606 and ask for Fritzer Shunk, Building Code Official.
