Land Use Studies <BACK

WILL THE LAND USE STUDY BE EFFECTIVE?

Through this study, PENNDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) have provided tools to help municipalities within the study area plan for future growth. However, PENNDOT and FHWA do not have authority to implement or enforce land use plans. Municipal leaders, with help from Lancaster County, are responsible for implementing growth management plans.

There is no guarantee that the municipalities will follow this project's land use recommendations. However, municipal leaders and the public have supported managing growth since this project began in 1997. Putting the best growth management plan in place today sets an example. It provides guidance for future municipal leaders. With that in mind, the project team has been working with the municipalities to help make land use recommendations workable.
