Township Comprehensive Plan
Susquehanna Township is developing a Comprehensive Plan – Sustainable Susquehanna 2030 - to identify and prioritize the Township’s strategic goals and objectives for the next 10-year horizon. The Plan will be a tool for the Township to study land use, socioeconomic trends, and challenges and opportunities to create a unified policy guide for local decision-making.
Your participation is critical to ensure the planning process includes local input and reflects the community’s vision for the future. There will be several opportunities for residents and stakeholders to participate in the planning process in Spring 2018 (see below). All updates and informational flyers will be posted here, so be sure to check back often to stay up-to-date on how you can participate. Sign up to be informed by email on upcoming events and how to be involved.

As a recently designated Certified Gold Community by Sustainable Pennsylvania, Susquehanna Township is committed to advancing best practices for “Sustaining Places”. Sustainable Susquehanna 2030 will help the Township continue its effort to provide a balanced and livable built environment for all residents.
The Certified Community by the Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification is intended to bring recognition to municipalities that are applying the policy and practice of sustainability as their way of operating to advance community prosperity. It also serves as a mechanism for sharing best practices for creating a more sustainable Pennsylvania. More information on can be found on our Sustainability page.
The Comprehensive Plan will be designed to help the Township become a socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable community. There are two primary goals for the new plan. First, it will create a vision for the future of the Township based on the direction that citizens would like the community to move towards. Second, it will provide a series of realistic strategies, projects, and programs that can be implemented to achieve the vision.
