Planning Commission

Township Building-bannerResponsibilities

The Planning Commission is comprised of a seven-member board serving overlapping four-year terms. They make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors for their decisions regarding the Ordinances and policies that govern the development of land within Newtown Township. They are responsible for reviewing and making recommendations related to proposed subdivision and land development plans, range planning, proposed zoning ordinances, subdivision and commercial developments. They are also directly responsible for review and development of the Township’s Comprehensive Plan.  The Township has engaged Sarcinello Planning & GIS Services to update the Township Comprehensive Plan, which was last updated in 2001.  More information on the Comprehensive Plan is available on the Comprehensive Plan webpage.
