Attention All Building Permit Applicants

Effective June 1st, 2015

South Middleton Township will no longer accept plans that have not been pre-approved by Middle Department Inspection Agency (MDIA).

Any building plan that has electrical work must be submitted to Middle Department Inspection Agency for electrical approval before submission to the South Middleton Township Building Department. Middle Department will accept plans at the counter, or you can mail them to their office. Plans must be accompanied by a completed South Middleton Township building permit application. This change includes both Commercial and Residential plans.

Middle Department Inspection Agency Inc. is located at 3901 Hartzdale Drive, Suite 112, Camp Hill, PA 17011. Phone (717) 761-5340 Fax (717) 761-5590. When you pick up your approved electrical plans from MDIA you will pay MDIA directly for any fees owed to them. South Middleton Township will continue to issue the building permit.

Due to customer complaints about turnaround time on electrical reviews the Township is taking these steps to hopefully shorten the overall review time. Now the customer can work directly with MDIA to get the correct information needed to complete their electrical review without passing information and plans through South Middleton Township.

Volunteers Needed

At various times of the year, the Township needs volunteers to serve in different positions. Appointments to boards and commissions are typically made at the annual Reorganization meeting (the first Monday of the year after January 1st) and to fill terms when the appointee resigns.

There are also less formal volunteer tasks that are needed throughout the year.

If you are interested in volunteering for any particular position or just volunteering in general, please send a letter of interest to the Township or contact the Township office. We can direct you through the process and try to fit your abilities and interests to openings we might have.
