Cumberland County Comprehensive Plan Survey

The Cumberland County Planning Commission’s mission is to partner with our urban, suburban, and rural communities to implement plans that promote economic development, provide more housing and transportation choices, and protect clean air, land, and water. Learn more about the CCPC and CLUS partnership.

We apologize for the recent technical difficulties with our online survey. The survey should now be working properly and we will be collecting responses online until April 30th. Paper copies of this survey can be obtained by contacting the Cumberland County Planning Commission at 717-240-5362.

Cumberland County needs your input!

The Cumberland County Planning Commission would like your input on the future of the county. Use the survey below to share your thoughts on the draft goals and objectives that will be used to update the comprehensive plan. Your feedback will help determine how we conserve, grow, and connect in the future! This 10-15 minute survey is voluntary. You must be 18 years or older to participate.

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

The Cumberland County Comprehensive Plan is a long range policy document that establishes goals and objectives for the orderly development of the county. Comprehensive plans typically consider a wide variety of topics including land use, housing, economic development, public facilities, transportation and natural resource protection. A comprehensive plan is not a zoning ordinance that has legal authority. Rather, the comprehensive plan is a guidance document that establishes goals and objectives for a community to achieve. Other planning tools that have the force and effect of law, such as a zoning ordinance, are used to implement the goals and objectives found in the comprehensive plan.

How can I give feedback?

Fill out the survey below to provide your opinion on the importance of conservation initiatives, preferred future growth patterns and transportation needs facing the County in the future. Paper copies of this survey can be obtained by contacting the Cumberland County Planning Commission at 717-240-5362. Residents can complete the survey anytime through April 30, 2017.

Where can I learn more?

A series of public meetings will be held in Spring 2017 to discuss the Comprehensive Plan update. For information on upcoming meetings, follow Cumberland County on Facebook and Twitter. You can also learn more about the CLUS and CCPC partnership or the Cumberland County Planning Commission online.
