Central Adams Joint Comprehensive Plan
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Cumberland Township, Gettysburg Borough, and Straban Township, with assistance from the Office of Planning & Development, are in the process of preparing a regional comprehensive plan. This Plan will be known as the Central Adams Joint Comprehensive Plan. ​Check back often as we will be posting updates to this page as the Plan progresses.

PLAN STATUS & INFORMATION

Progression of Development - See how certain locations within the Region have developed, or remained rural, through aerial photography dating from 1937 through 2013.   

Character Areas - Character Areas identify locations within the region that have similar form, function, landscapes, or development patterns, as they currently exist.

Growth Areas and Future Land Use - An interactive map has been put together to present the progression of information that was used to help develop the draft Future Land Use map and the Designated Growth Areas. This app allows the user to customize an experience that builds upon the existing features and Character Areas of the Region. The future land use is presented, along with a place to add a comment.

 

Draft Plan - We are currently preparing the draft Plan, which will be sent to the Steering Committee shortly. Please check back.
