The Borough’s Planning Commission is responsible for reviewing and providing a recommendation to Borough Council for approval of any proposed subdivision or land development project in the Borough.
Proposed residential land development that is less than 5,000 s.f. in size is exempt from the Subdivision and Land Development (SALDO) requirements. Commercial properties, regardless of the size of the proposed land development, must obtain Planning Commission and Borough Council approval, either through an approved, recorded plan, or the granting of a waiver request from all required sections of the SALDO. Any proposed subdivision of land must obtain Planning Commission and Borough Council approval.
All proposed subdivision or land development is further reviewed by the Borough engineer, zoning officer, and fire and police departments, to ensure conformity with other Borough regulations and that public safety is taken into account. The Planning Commission meets on the first Monday of the month at 3:30PM, in Council chambers.
