The Commission serves as an advisory board that makes recommendations to the Supervisors, Zoning Hearing Board, and to the Zoning Officer. The Commission reviews all major and minor subdivisions, land development plans and any new zoning changes such as variances or home occupations. Members of the Commission meet with the Supervisors from time to time to work on new zoning changes and ordinances.
