The Crawford County Planning Office is the full time staff for the Crawford County Board of Commissioners who coordinates long-term investments and community development with the Crawford County Planning Commission and local municipalities. The Planning Commission is a board of volunteers from across the County who make recommendations on subdivisions, land developments, and investments in communities across the County. The Commission was established in 1963 and is made up of a nine member board of County residents.
The Crawford County Planning Commission and Office is committed
to providing solution oriented services through community planning as required
by the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code, so as to facilitate the
growth of the local economy, enhance the quality of life, and preserve the
natural environment for current and future generations.
