Looking at properties in central PA -- land only with no homes or bldgs currently in place. One is zoned OPFD and the other OSFD -- any ideas? Any help would be appreciated!

Zoning varies by municipality (over 2,500 of them) in PA. Municipality does NOT equal zip code address.

There is NO substitute or short cut - one needs to look up that particular municipality's zoning ordinance and read it, as the names of zones offers only a general (and sometimes misleading) idea of what is permitted and prohibited in each one.

A variance in PA zoning law is very hard to get, so reading the zoning ordinance is important to avoid a costly mistake with your money. Some municipalities but not all have their ordinances online. If it's not online you will likely need to go to the municipal secretary's office to read the ordinance book. Do not count on municipalities having "normal office hours" either.
