Hamilton Committee tables historic commission ordinance Hamilton Committee tables historic commission ordinance HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – In 1979, Hamilton Township established a historic district that would be overseen by the Hamilton Township Historic Preservation Commission. An effort to pass an ordinance to make the role of the commission more defined stalled at the Tuesday, Feb. 17 township committee meeting as a motion passed to table the introduction of the ordinance until the next meeting, scheduled for March 2.

The proposed ordinance does not change the role of the commission, which is to primarily serve as an advisory board to the planning and zoning boards. The new 18 page law is a much more comprehensive document, yet is one that will continue to be amended over time, according to Township Solicitor Robert Sandman.
