Local Laws

Aleppo Township is governed by the Pennsylvania First Class Township Code. Click here to access that code. Locally, we are generally governed by several sets of local laws, which are also known as “ordinances.” Our ordinance book is available for public review at the Township Building and at the Sewickley Public Library.

Our ordinances are also available online.

The bulk of our local laws are covered in our Township Ordinances and address some of the common regulations such as noise, property maintenance, and solicitation. Click here to access our Township Ordinances.

Note: the Township’s Zoning Ordinance and Zoning Map were updated in August 2022.  Our online eCode is currently being revised, but right now the online searchable document only contains the OLD (outdated) zoning information.  Click here for our current Zoning Ordinance and click here for our current Zoning Map.

 

Note: the Township’s Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance was updated in September 2023.  Our online eCode is currently being revised, but right now the online searchable document only contains the OLD (outdated) SALDO information.  Click here for our current Subdivison and Land Development Ordinance.

 

Aleppo Township follows Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) regulations regarding Fires / Open Burning.  Fires may be no larger than 3 feet wide by 3 feet long by 2 feet high – the size of a recreational fire pit.  Residential burn barrels are not allowed.  Click here to see the Open Burning Fact Sheet, and click here to see Allegheny County’s Open Burning brochure.   The full legislation can be accessed here.
