The Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 4 in the municipal building to consider a solar panel ordinance amendment.
A copy of the amendment is available for public inspection at the municipal building 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The amendment would restrict where Upper St. Clair residents could put solar panels on their property, and require screening and setbacks.
Solar panels on the front of a roof would be required to be parallel to the roof and no panels would be allowed to go over the height of the roof. Signage and advertising would also be prohibited.
The purpose of the amendment is to make the approval process of solar panels easier in the township.
The planning commission unanimously voted to recommend the amendment.
