Planning Development

The Planning Commission is responsible for the processing of applications for land development, simple subdivision, major and minor land developments, grading/excavating, floodplain, and storm water management.  The Commission coordinates meetings with the applicants and developers in order to assist with the approval process.  The Commission's main purpose is to facilitate and manage development in the Borough that meets the needs of individual property owners and the Borough as a whole, while using the Comprehensive Plan as a guide.  The Borough of Green Tree is in the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan so that it can be approved for 2024.

Subdivision and/or Land Development applications must include the specified checklist and plans.  Applicants must submit nine (9) sets of review packets which include the application, checklist, report, plans and any other supporting documents to help streamline the review process.  Electronic files are required to be submitted with each application for each review. Applications can be found with the Building Inspection Permits.
