Land Development

Subdivision & Land Development

Subdivision and Land Development in Franconia Township is regulated through the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code and Franconia Township's Subdivision & Land Development Ordinance (SALDO). These two documents dictate how the process of subdividing or developing property within Franconia Township is handled. A qualifying property owner can submit an application along with engineered plans to the Township for official review. The Planning Commission (PC) is the first body to review the submitted plans. They formally accept plans at their meetings and then the Township Engineer conducts a technical review of the submission. The Engineer will issue a formal review letter that will be discussed during future meetings. The plan sets will continue to be revised until such time they are found acceptable. The PC is a recommending body and can recommend approval/denial of a plan to the Board of Supervisors (BOS). The BOS then conduct their own review of the plans based on the recommendation of the PC and the formal reviews by the Township Engineer. When found acceptable, the BOS will authorize approval/denial of the plans.

Subdivision and land development is a two-step approval process requiring both preliminary and then final approval. A plan does not go back before the PC during the final approval process, it only goes before the BOS. For minor subdivisions preliminary/final approval can be obtained concurrently.    Approvals are granted through resolutions by the BOS.
