 Planning Commission

THE NORTHERN MONTOUR REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION
All Zoning, Subdivision, and Land Development activities in Derry Township are administrated through the Northern Montour Regional Planning Commission (NMRPC). The NMRCP represents the three contiguous townships of Derry, Limestone, and West Hemlock in Montour County.   "Early in 1992, five (5) of the eight (8) member-municipalities in the Montour County Council of Government (COG) decided to undertake the development of a Joint Municipal Comprehensive Plan for the purpose of guiding future growth and development within their areas.  The Northern Montour Regional Planning Commission was then established by the five municipalities and was assigned the primary responsibilities for preparation of the plan.The Commission's overall intent, through planning, is to ensure that future development within their borders is managed so that it is environmentally, aesthetically, and economically acceptable. The five (5) municipalities participating in the preparation of this Joint Comprehensive Plan are Anthony, Derry, Liberty, Limestone, and Weat Hemlock townships."  While the Comprehensive Plan still covers the five original townships, only Derry, Limestone and West Hemlock township have Zoning /Subdivision and Land Development Ordinances through the NMRPC.
 
Each township has two representatives serving on the planning board. Each NMRPC board member is appointed by their respective township's board of supervisors.  The Montour County Planning Commission is an active partner in the review process of all subdivisions.
MEETING DATES ARE ON THE SECOND THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH AT THE LIMESTONE TOWNSHIP MUNICIPAL BUILDING IN LIMESTONEVILLE, PA AT 7:30 PM.  ANY DEVIATION WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE LOCAL NEWSPAPERS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SUNSHINE LAWS.
