Satellite dish application
required in town limits
Because most of the corporation is an historic district, zoning ordinances were created; one ordinance determines the legality of satellite dish erection and placement on your property.
If you are considering a satellite dish, following is the process for the legal installation of a satellite dish within Town limits:
Read the related Zoning Ordinance: either in Town Hall or online (at www.shepherdstown.us At the left of your screen, click on “Codified Ordinances.” Scan down and click on “Planning and Zoning,” which contains the Title 9 ordinances.)
An application for satellite dish installation must be obtained from Town Hall or online, at www.shepherdstown.us The application must be filed out completely, signed, and submitted with a fee.
