Subdivision and Land development
A subdivision and land development ordinance regulates the subdivision of land, development of land for single-family, multi-family uses, and for adjustment of property lines between neighbors. Plans and fees are required.
Cambria County enacted an ordinance setting requirements for addressing of homes, businesses, and apartments. All street address numbers shall be made of durable reflective material to make them more visible. Residences – not less than three inches in height; apartments; townhouses and business – not less than four inches in height. This is extremely important for response from an emergency vehicle. For more information, call 255-7777.
Numerous Street Signs and Posts are vandalized and stolen each year. This form of vandalism and maliciousness is costing tax dollars to replace and repair, dollars that could be put to use elsewhere. If you have information that will lead to the arrest of violators, please call the West Hills Regional Police office at 255-4145.
The Borough right-of-way as defined in the Code: “the total width of any land reserved or dedicated as a street, alley, crosswalk or for other public or semi-public purposes.” This generally means from the edge of the street to the inside edge of the sidewalk (the side closest to your home). However, some areas of the Borough are laid out differently without sidewalks and, therefore, the width may differ. Recently, Borough residents have been paving (concrete, asphalt, stones) over the Borough right-of-way in front of their homes. This is a violation of Westmont Borough Code.
When property is sold or transferred, pressure testing must be performed prior to closing to determine if illegal storm or surface water is connected to the sanitary sewer. Applications are available at the Westmont Borough Office.
Your Borough and County tax notices are mailed March 1st and School notices July 1st. Taxes are your responsibility! Call Robert Miller, Tax Collector at 814-255-5350 for place and time of collection.
