This application will be processed in accordance with our Municipal Code, and Municipalities Planning Code. The first step for the developer is to complete an application for a Zoning change. They have completed that step. Staff are working to review the Zoning Application and it will be scheduled to be heard by our Planning Commission at a public meeting likely in the Spring/Summer time frame. Once our Planning Commission hears the application it will then move onto the Board of Commissioners for their consideration. All of our agendas and minutes are posted on line and you can sign up on our website to make sure you don’t miss this information using this link https://www.uppergwynedd.org/subscribe. The Township is committed to keeping our residents informed as this application moves through the process.
If Zoning Approval is granted the applicant will then need to apply for Land Development. That process also includes public meetings before the Planning Commission and Board of Commissioners. This step will not occur if the applicant doesn’t receive Zoning Approval.
