The Township Comprehensive Plan (adopted in 2003 along with subsequently adopted specific plan documents) is a policy guide for future development for the Township for approximately the next decade. It is a crucial document to guide recommendations and decisions of the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors, as well as for decisions made by private developers, Township businesses and residents.
After reviewing the current documents, the Board of Supervisors determined that the Land Use and Housing Elements (plans) within the 2003 Plan were in need of updating. Many decisions have been made, developments proposed and built, and zoning changes have taken place in the period since the Plan’s adoption, making revisions necessary. Demographic changes and development preferences have also taken place, contributing to the need to update the Plan.
The Township issued a Request for Proposals in February 2017 and selected Bergmann Associates, PC to prepare the Land Use and Housing Element updates. The work on the updates began in August and will include the following tasks:
Work is expected to be completed within approximately one year from the start of work.
