Solebury Township is seeking qualified applicants for the full-time position of Building Inspector. This individual will be responsible for for the administration and enforcement of the building codes and reports to the Assistant Township Manager. The position has room for growth and additional responsibilities.
One of the reasons Solebury is such a great place to live is because of our citizen volunteers. We are very fortunate to have more than 40 volunteers who serve the township on permanent and ad hoc advisory boards as well as the Zoning Hearing Board. Among other things, these volunteers generously give their valuable time and expertise to:
- protect, conserve, manage, and promote our natural resources (Environmental Advisory Council)
- make recommendations on how to make agriculture more sustainable in Solebury (Farm Committee)
- foster the aesthetic values of the community and enhance the overall ambiance of the 2 historic districts (HARB)
- promote Land Preservation (Land Preservation Committee)
- plan, improve and maintain Township parks (Parks & Rec Board)
- make recommendations on Land Development issues (Planning Commission)
- render decisions on specific types of land use appeals and applications (Zoning Hearing Board)
If you have any questions or are interested in giving back to our community by volunteering for one of our committees, please contact Gretchen Rice at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-297-5656. Please provide a brief statement of interest, what committee(s) you are interested in, and a resume (optional). We will be conducting interviews in December (and January, if need be). Hope to hear from you soon!
Solebury Township has revised its EROSION AND SEDIMENTATION CONTROL, GRADING AND/OR STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PERMIT APPLICATION forms. Effective Monday, November 14, 2016, the new forms will be required.
The Township has observed that the detail on plan submissions associated with grading, erosion and sedimentation control and/or stormwater applications has often been incomplete or inadequate to support the proposed project. This has resulted in unnecessary delays, required multiple revised plan submissions and additional expenses to our residents.
In the Township’s ongoing efforts to streamline the permitting process, as well as to avoid unnecessary expenses to the property owner, the new application forms have been updated to require the consultant to acknowledge that the required detail is accurately reflected in the initial plan submission.
The updated application forms can be viewed by clicking here .

As a township, we will continue to welcome, value and do our best toprotect every person, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, political affiliation or nationality.
