The comprehensive plan is a planning tool available to Pennsylvania municipalities under the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (MPC), Act 247. This legislation enables our Township to adopt a plan, and governs how a plan is prepared and what topics must be covered. The comprehensive plan establishes public policy by which Township officials will make future decisions concerning land use, housing, transportation, resource protection and community facilities. The plan identifies a series of recommendations that when executed, will implement the plan. This policy will guide future ordinance revisions, capital expenditures, and facilities and services.
