    The application form contains the applicant's information and must include the applicant's nine digit zip code, adjacent property address information and physician's information. Adjacent property addresses are defined as properties which share a common boundary line or corner with the property to be treated or which are directly across a residential road, stream or other right-of-way from the property to be treated.  In agricultural areas, adjacent properties means properties or planted crops which share a common boundary line or corner with the area to be treated or which are directly across a secondary road, stream, or right-of-way from the area to be treated.
  • Physician's Certification
    The physician certification form regarding the patient's current medical diagnosed condition or ailment specifies the reason for the patient to be placed on the notification registry.  This document must accompany the notification registry application.
  • Additional Properties Listing
    Regulation 637 Rule 5 1(b) allows for recommended additional distance notification provided it is deemed necessary and substantiated by a physician.  The physician's information must include the recommended additional distance notification in feet.
