In addition, as you plan your improvements, please note the following special considerations:

Streams, wetlands, and floodplains - Bath Township has regulations pertaining to these natural features providing additional building setbacks. If one of these features is on or near the property, the required setback may affect the location of the home, accessory structure, driveway, or other improvement.

Steep slopes - If a home, accessory structure, driveway, or other improvement is being built on or near steep slopes, a Conditional Use from the Board of Zoning Appeals may be required. The site topography must be included on site plans when slopes approach 18% or greater.
