WHO DOES THE PLANNING WHERE I LIVE?

Elected officials (supervisors, council or commissioners) approve all ordinances and resolutions made by boards or commissions in the municipality. Each municipality in the PA 23 EIS study area also has a planning committee or a planning commission that handles planning issues. Some municipalities have full- or part-time zoning and planning staff that deals with planning administration and provides professional guidance.

What other municipal boards or commissions may be involved with planning? The Zoning Hearing Board, Historic Review Board, Recreation Board, or Sewer and Water Authority all deal with planning issues.
