The Crawford County Commissioners have adopted a Uniform Parcel Identifier System Ordinance. This ordinance becomes effective November 29, 2018. Please note changes were made from the original ordinance filed. All documents identified in the ordinance must have a UPI number before they can be recorded in the Recorder of Deeds office.

There will be a $20.00 fee for each parcel that receives a number. This fee will be paid at the time of the document recording in the Recorder of Deeds office. It may be added to the same check as the recording fee.

Uniform Parcel Identifier Ordinance


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.
