STAFF REPORTS

 

  • Applications for things like Conditional Use Permits, or Variances, Rezoning, General Development Plans, Preliminary Plats, Final Plats, etc… require a public hearing in front of the respective Township’s Planning Commission and/or Board. Those public hearings are of course open to the public.
  • TCPA staff prepares a report that explains and analyzes the criteria that must be met for the Planning Commission and/or Board to approve an application. You’ll find links to those Staff reports on this page.
  • Typically, you’ll find the Staff report(s) on this page about a week before the public hearing.
  • After the public hearing and once the Planning Commission and/or Board has made a decision, the Staff reports are removed from this page.
