We're Updating Our Ordinances

Why Update the Ordinances

As part of the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code, each municipality's zoning ordinance should reflect the policy goals of the municipality. With the completion of Plan Marshall Township, the Township is ready to implement the plan. The first step is updating the ordinance and aligning policy with the strategies outlined in the plan.  

This Project

The Ordinance Update will play out over a 15-month timeline. We will conduct a review of current ordinances and evaluate them against current best practices. Once, the review is complete the consultant team will work with staff and the project steering committee to deliver a clear, concise code written in plain language. The desired goal for this project is to create a functional ordinance that achieves the goals of the Comprehensive Plan and makes it easier for people on both sides of the development counter.

We will conduct public engagement workshops and visioning sessions to understand what kind of future development the people of Marshall Township would like to see.
