Request for Investigation

Complaints pertaining to property maintenance issues or zoning-related matters are to be submitted on a Township “Request For Investigation” form.  This form may be selected and downloaded by clicking the green “FORMS” button above.  The form may be submitted in any of the following ways:

  • Drop off the completed form at the South Whitehall Municipal Building
  • Scan the completed form and email it to
  • Mail the completed form to:
    South Whitehall Township
    Attn: Request for Investigation
    4444 Walbert Avenue
    Allentown, PA  18104

The Community Development Department will investigate the requests to determine if they are valid and take the appropriate action with achieving a positive result in mind.  Our goal is to first gain code compliance with the property owner.  If there is difficulty in gaining code compliance, the Township has other avenues to use, such as filing citations to the Magistrate and engaging a “self-help” remedy.  If the complaint reaches the magisterial level, the complaintant may be asked to be a witness and assist the Township in its case at the Magistrate hearing.
