Planning Documents
Comprehensive Plan
Physical planning by municipalities for the future development and redevelopment of their communities has long been accepted as an important function of local government.  Planning is a legal means of deciding how best to provide a proper arrangement of land uses, efficient circulation, desirable environmental features, and general amenities of community life.

In many communities throughout Pennsylvania, the vision for future growth and development is outlined in a Comprehensive Plan.  Comprehensive Plans are the backbone of any community planning effort.  They outline challenges facing the community, identify solutions, and provide guidance to appointed and elected officials on planning-related decisions. 

Myerstown Borough published a "Mini-Comprehensive Plan" in 2012, funded in-part by a grant from the Lebanon County Commissioners.
