Careful planning and strict guidelines have gone a long way toward making sure development in the Township has as little environmental impact as possible. The Environmental Advisory Committee moved from an Ad Hoc group to permanent committee on September 24, 2020.

Formed in May 2019, the Ad Hoc Environmental Advisory Committee consisted of 10 community members and two employees tasked with finding new ways to implement and support the Cranberry Plan’s environmental goals. They discussed everything from land development patterns and density issues to green space preservation and stormwater regulations.

In the immediate future, the Committee intends to focus on enhancing the open space and buffer requirements, developing incentives for environmental quality measures and evaluating landscape requirements.
