§ M-101 Zoning, Prior Ordinances

(These ordinances are no longer in effect, having been superseded by Ordinance 272, which comprises Chapter 29 of this codification. These prior zoning ordinances are listed here, however, as a convenience to those wishing to determine when specific uses of land and buildings were first permitted or prohibited in the various districts, and when specific land in the Borough was placed in a particular district. Thereby it can be determined whether specific property, not in conformity with the present zoning ordinance, is a lawful nonconforming use.)
