Parties Responsible for Plan Implementation

The parties ultimately responsible for plan implementation, and the cooperative advancement of this plan’s objectives, action steps, and capital improvements are the Borough Councils and Township Board of Commissioners. The municipalities will appoint members to a joint planning commission, namely for purposes of joint zoning and subdivision ordinance development. However, the Commission should, in its annual report to the member municipalities, examine and evaluate the implementation of plan recommendations. The respective governing bodies should consider the report of the Joint Planning Commission in cooperatively advancing the projects and policies outlined herein. The respective bodies may then rely on their local Planning Commissions, civil engineer, staff, and consultants to accomplish the vision set forth in this document. Each section of this plan attempts to specify particular bodies responsible for the implementation of specific action items. The governing bodies, Councils and Board, will assume ultimate responsibility for the implementation of this plan and may formalize such commitment in a cooperative implementation agreement as authorized by the MPC.
