Land Use Reform

Take the Land Use/Parking Survey
The deadline to complete the survey is September 27.

On January 25, 2023, the Land Use Reform Sub-Committee was formed to evaluate the items considered by Borough Council through a comprehensive review of the adopted policies and land use regulations. The Sub-Committee includes members of Borough Council, the Chairs of the Planning Commission and Zoning Hearing Board, the Borough Manager, and the Sustainable Community and Economic Planning Director. This webpage will be regularly updated with information that is presented to Borough Council.
