C-1 Commercial District. The C-1 Commercial District is intended to promote development of storefront space, and provide a mix of retail, personal service and office uses, primarily along the commercial corridors within the Township. As the district is typically in close proximity to residential neighborhoods, and provides goods and services to residents of the Township, the district standards encourage a traditional commercial character, distinguished by a pedestrian-friendly orientation and storefronts opening onto the public sidewalk, and serve as a buffer between residential development and major or secondary highways, or between residential development and nonresidential uses.
C-2 Commercial District. The C-2 Commercial District is intended to provide for the needs of a wide range of larger highway-oriented business establishments located along major corridors within the Township. The district also includes modern, well-planned, integrated shopping center developments. The district encourages the establishment of commercial service districts that serve the residents of the Township as well as surrounding areas.
Only those uses listed in Table 61.1: Commercial District Uses as permitted, special exception, or conditional uses are allowed within the commercial districts.

A "C" indicates that a use is a conditional use in that zoning district and must obtain a conditional use approval. No letter (i.e., a blank space) or the absence of the use from the table indicates that use is not allowed within that zoning district.
The following footnote applies to the table: Footnote 1: In the C-2 District, townhouse (single-family attached), duplex (two-family attached), and multifamily use on the ground floor of the apartment building. Dwellings are only permitted as part of an approved development plan that provides a permitted retail commercial use as the primary use in the ground floor along the road frontage of the development tract.
