Boards and Committees


At the root of any great community is the involvement of it's citizens. One great way to get involved is by joining a Board or Commission. These Boards act in various capacities assisting the Board of Commissioners and Township Administration in decision making. The involvement of members of community is paramount in building and retaining a strong community.

Planning Commission

The Planning Commission acts in advisory capacity to the Township Commissioners to review subdivision and land development plans. The Commissioner's core purpose is to assure compliance with our local building and zoning rules and regulations.
