November 2010Newsletters In the Zone

In an attempt to keep school districts aware of impending residential development within its borders, House Bill No. 1754 proposes to add provisions to the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code to require a municipality to notify the superintendent in writing if a plan for a residential development or development plans for a planned residential development were finally approved by the municipality during the preceding month. The notice from the municipality to the superintendent is required to include, at a minimum, the location of the development, the number and types of units to be included in the development and the expected construction schedule of the development.
