Are you interested in the future growth in East Rockhill Township?
Your input is welcomed since the plan will help shape the community's future by providing decision-making guidance on such issues as zoning, open-space acquisition, transportation improvements, water supply planning, stormwater management and sewage facilities planning.
Careful planning is important because the state's Municipal Planning Code requires townships to provide opportunities for all types of land uses. For example, the Plan adds Agricultural Tourism as an allowed use but imposes guidelines about where it can occur. The same holds for new uses such as medical marijuana dispensaries and private rental properties (Airbnb).
Bucks County Planning Commission will be presenting the 2020 Draft Comprehensive Plan at the Planning Commission Meeting on Thursday August 6, 2020 7:00pm at the Perkasie Fire Hall located at 100 North 5th Street.
Based on the Governor’s COVID-19 Disaster Declaration and Mitigation Order that went into effect July 16, 2020 the Planning Commission meeting is being held with special meeting protocol. Six feet social distancing, mask, temperature check at the door and indoor attendance of no more than 25 persons will be adhered to.
To comply with 25 persons in attendance pre-registration is required by contacting the Township Manager by 3:00pm on August 3, 2020 to ensure conformity with indoor attendance protocol. Changes to the meeting will be considered if more than 25 persons wish to attend.
