2009 Plan Background

On April 2, 2009, Cranberry Township’s Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a new comprehensive plan which was developed over a period of several years, extending to 2030. The Cranberry Plan will guide the Township’s policies and legislative agenda throughout that period. Developed with extensive input from local residents, as well as Township staff and outside consultants, the plan is comprehensive, detailed and flexible.

During the next 25 years, conditions in the community will change due to unexpected economic, social and technological changes. In some instances, these factors may prove to be dramatically different from present conditions. Close monitoring and regular public updates will ensure that this plan remains a useful guide.
