salvage/junk yard on the subject property without first obtaining a Zoning Permit; (2) § 470-17
by establish a salvage/junk yard when that use is not permitted in the Commercial (C) zoning
district; and (3) § 470-122 by using and occupying the subject property as a salvage/junk yard
without first obtaining a Certificate of Use and Occupancy.
PoconoPlaces, LLC owns the properties that are subject to the Enforcement Notices.
Those properties are located along Route 611 in Pocono Township, Monroe County, PA, in the
