On October 21 and November 4, 2019, the Board of Supervisors held a public hearing to take public comment on the proposed Chapter 27, Zoning and Chapter 22, Subdivision and Land Development (SALDO) Ordinances. The Board reviewed public comments and directed staff to prepare the final ordinance for a vote on November 18, 2019.
The Ferguson Township Planning and Zoning Department along with Environmental Planning and Design (EPD) have been working over the past two years to update the Township’s Zoning Ordinance.
Throughout the process, staff has worked with a Zoning and SALDO steering Committee made up of residents, local realtors, business owners, farmers, Planning Commission members, professional planners, an arborist, attorney, Builders Association, and the Chamber of Business and Industry. An Agricultural Ad Hoc Committee was formed to review the Agricultural Zoning Districts in the Township. The Planning Commission has reviewed this document as well as the Centre Regional Planning Commission. Several special meetings of the Board of Supervisors, Staff and EPD were held to review recommendations by the various groups and agencies.
The proposed Zoning and SALDO Ordinances are available for review at the Ferguson Township Municipal Building, 3147 Research Drive, State College, PA during normal business hours and are attached below.
