About the Office

Pike County Planning & Mapping Office is the County Department that comprehensively addresses county-wide planning issues and initiatives. The Planning & Mapping Office responsibilities include development, management and implementation of County planning initiatives and coordination and implementation of the Pike County Comprehensive Plan. Other core responsibilities of the Planning & Mapping Office are to provide professional technical planning assistance to municipal governments in such areas as municipal comprehensive planning, zoning, subdivision and land development, and to support and help facilitate local municipal and multi-municipal planning initiatives.

The Pike County Office of Community Planning was designated as the official county planning department by Ordinance of the Pike County Board of Commissioners. Authorization for this official designation falls under Section 201 of the PA Municipalities Planning Code (MPC).

In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State grants the power to govern and regulate local land-use and subdivision to the municipalities. Pike County has 13 municipalities in total, 11 of these are townships and 2 are boroughs. The County acts as an advisor to these municipalities on all submitted subdivision and land development plans.

All 13 municipalities in Pike County have an adopted Subdivision & Land Development Ordinance (SALDO), and all but Greene Township have adopted local zoning ordinances. The Pike County Office of Community Planning reviews subdivisions and land developments based upon the municipality's SALDO, zoning regulations, and other land use regulations. Land developments and subdivisions are also reviewed for their consistency with the goals and objectives identified in the County's Comprehensive Plan and also for appropriate 'best management practices'. See the Downloadable Documents section to the right for the current Fee Schedule and Procedure.

Pike County has been using GIS technology since the late 1980s. The tax maps were the first County feature to be digitized, and these maps have been maintained with GIS ever since. The County added more data layers throughout the 1990s, and developed programs to provide access to the data. Today, Pike County has extended the use of GIS throughout County offices, and has many data layers and information sources available.
