Zoning/Code Enforcement Officer & Planning Commission Director

Jenna Gorney

As Sandy Township’s Planner, I aim to ensure our neighborhoods and commercial corridors are beautiful, healthy, and thriving.   

I believe successful planning requires a combination of enhancing our existing assets through code enforcement measures, building a strong sense of place in order to strengthen our neighborhoods, and working to explore and develop our growth potential in a way that maintains our small-town charm. 

The Planning and Zoning office is here to assist with all your planning needs for questions regarding:

· Permitting

· Land development

· Code enforcement

· Economic development

Please contact Jenna Gorney at the township office at (814)371-4220 by email at, or by visiting the Township building during office hours: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9am-11am and 1pm-3pm. 

For your convenience, several documents have been made available online for download and review, as well as applications for general permitting. These can be filled out and returned with the other required paperwork to obtain permits.   

Please remember that all online copies of codesordinances, and maps are for review only and are not to replace the printed copy located at the township office. If a discrepancy is to be found between the two, the printed copy will overrule the online copy. 

Pennsafe handles building permit issuance and inspections.  Applications and information can be found on their website.
