What We Do

The Planning Commission reviews and makes final decisions on subdivision and land development plans. The Commission also acts in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and City Council on matters related to comprehensive planning, zoning, official map amendments, and amendments to land development regulations.

 

The deadlines for subdivision and/or land development plan applications or other items requiring prior Lancaster County Planning Commission (LCPC) review and comment are determined by the LCPC deadlines. The Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code requires a 30-day county planning commission review period prior to consideration of a subdivision and/or land development plan by the municipal planning commission. Deadlines for other City Planning Commission agenda items not requiring prior LCPC review, e.g., sketch plan review or waivers of plan submission requirements, are determined after consultation with the Bureau of Planning (717-291-4755) but are normally not less than 9 days (Monday of the preceding week ) prior to the City Planning Commission meeting.
