MOUNT POCONO PLANNING COMMISSION

In Pennsylvania, planning commissions are primarily responsible for and charged with exercising a municipality’s legal right to develop a comprehensive plan that outlines its specific community planning objectives that may focus on environmental protection; agricultural, historical, and cultural resource preservation; business retention, expansion, and recruitment; urban redevelopment; housing opportunities; parks and recreation amenities; transportation and utility infrastructure; or other health, safety, and public welfare needs and issues that are critical to community’s overall wellbeing and prosperity.

As such, planning commissions are on the front line regarding the issues that matter most to many communities. Their leadership is crucial in developing recommendations for implementing change as well as promoting responsible and sustainable community planning practices that have not only local implications, but multimunicipal and regional implications as well.

Planning Commission members are appointed by the Borough Council.

PLANNING COMMISSION MEETINGS

Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month @7:00 P.M. in the Council Chambers on the 2nd Floor of the Borough Building
