On behalf of the Lancaster County Planning Commission, community planners review and report on subdivisions, land developments, comprehensive plans, and municipal land use ordinance amendments. This broad range of planning review services is separated into two areas of activity: subdivision and land development reviews and community planning reviews. Most types of reviews are presented to the commission for its consideration at a public meeting prior to them being forwarded on to the respective municipalities and/or applicants.
Subdivision & Land Development Reviews
Lancaster County Planning Commission Staff reviews four general types of subdivisions and land developments: Approvals, Administrative Approvals, Advisory Reviews, and MOUs.
Community Planning Reviews
Lancaster County Planning Commission Staff provides advisory commentary for municipal planning, land use controls, and other activities as provided for in the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (MPC).
