The Hampden Township Board of Commissioners has retained the services of a professional land use planning firm, Simone Collins, Inc., to develop an Official Map. An Official Map is a map and ordinance designed to implement the goals and community vision set forth in the recently updated and approved Township Comprehensive Plan. The Official Map shows the locations of planned future public lands and facilities such as transportation, recreational parks and trails and open space. The Official Map expresses a municipality’s interest in acquiring these lands for public purposes in the future. The Official Map is not the official Zoning Map of a municipality.
General information about the development and benefits of an Official Map can be found at the following web link:
The work associated with the development of an Official Map will take place in numerous public meetings and the community is encouraged to attend and participate in those meetings and discussions.
Following is a tentative schedule of meetings which will include the Official Map as a topic for discussion on the meeting agenda. All meetings will be held at the Hampden Township Municipal Building at 230 S. Sporting Hill Road, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050. The schedule is subject to change as the project progresses so residents
and businesses are advised to contact the Township staff at 717-761-0119 during regular business hours or to continue to watch for updates to the schedule on the Township’s website.
