The Planning Department consists of a seven permanent and two alternate members commission appointed by the Board of Supervisors. The Planning Commission advises and makes recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on matters related to land development and township planning. These items include:
Subdivision and land development plans
Amendments to the zoning and subdivision ordinances
Recreation paths and community enhancements to roadways and parks
Plans are submitted to the department where they undergo a minimum 90 day review process by the planners and the township engineer for thoroughness and compliance to the ordinance. Planners review plans with applicants and offer suggestions that often lead to revising plans in the best interest of the residents. Understanding good planning benefits our community.
