The Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution implementing the 2015 Comprehensive Plan at their January 26 meeting. The Plan provides strategic direction for the future development of Derry Township. It is the culmination of a long, collaborative planning process that began in 2012, engaging community members, elected and appointed officials, Township staff, and technical experts, which involved reviewing surveys, analyzing data, defining challenges, setting goals and objectives, and formulating methods to achieve the objectives. Smart Growth principles were utilized as a foundation for the community’s future growth. The Comprehensive Plan is focused on promoting and encouraging the development of safe, healthy, and distinctive living environments, valuing open space, providing vibrant cultural, social, and business offerings, and respecting our cultural heritage and scenic beauty.

The Township is thankful for the valuable community input that was received and would like to express their gratitude to everyone who participated in the process.

An advisory committee has been created to recommend revisions to the Zoning Ordinance to implement the goals and objectives of the Comprehensive Plan. When a draft has been completed, it will be made available for public review and comment.
