The Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (MPC), Act 247, requires all subdivision and land development proposals to be submitted to the county Planning Commission for review prior to municipal action. The county review is advisory only and final approval for any proposal is made by the municipality.

The Planning Department is the Commission’s professional staff and prepares comments for the Commission’s review. Meetings are open to the public. Meeting dates are advertised in the newspaper each year and held on the third Thursday of the month at 4 p.m. in the Government Center Building in Media, 1st floor Council Meeting Room.

If you are interested in submitting a subdivision, land development, or municipal ordinance for review, please visit the Submit a Plan or Ordinance for Review page.
