About the Commission

The Planning Commission is a seven-member board appointed by the Board of Supervisors for four-year, staggered terms. Meetings and procedures are governed by the Municipal Planning Code of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as well as the Township Subdivision & Land Development Ordinance.

The Planning Commission reviews:
  • Subdivision and Land Development Plans
  • Conditional Use Applications
  • Lot Line Changes
  • Requests for Waivers
The Commission makes recommendations to the Board of Supervisors, which retains all approval authority.

Steps to Follow When Submitting a Plan

Developers follow these steps when submitting a plan to the township:
  • Presentation of proposal and drawings of sketch, preliminary or final plans to township staff
  • Review of plans by Planning Commission at regular public meetings
  • Presentation and open discussion
  • Township engineer determines technical completeness
  • Township manager and counsel determine code compliance
  • Appeal to Zoning Hearing Board for variances
  • Request policy or plan conformance review (if variances are granted)
  • Return to Planning Commission, which makes recommendations to Board of Supervisors
  • Submits final plan to Board of Supervisors for public hearing
