This online portal, linked below, provides a platform for ideas which are being worked on to enhance Crawford County communities to be shared with Crawford County Planning regardless of the project phase, funding, or support. As resources become available, Crawford County Planning can only support efforts we are aware of, which is why this platform plays a critical role in communicating local intiatives.

The County of Crawford lies in northwestern Pennsylvania. Originally it was inhabited by the Iroquiois Indians and other tribes and nations. In later years, the land was acquired by a group of Dutch investors under title of the Holland Land Company and resold to settlers. The Commonwealth allocated land to its Revolutionary War soldiers as a bonus settlement. The county was formed in 1800 from a portion of Allegheny County and named after Colonel William Crawford, an early military hero and close friend of George Washington.
