Comprehensive Plan

In 2021, South Fayette Township is beginning the process of updating our Comprehensive Plan, in partnership with engineering and planning firm Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc. (HRG).

The public will have opportunities to share opinions and feedback. Find updates on this page.

The Comprehensive Plan identifies the goals and strategies for growth and conservation in the community.

Pennsylvania's laws guide the basic content for comprehensive plans so that growth is encouraged in a coordinated manner.

A comprehensive plan differs from a zoning ordinance in that it is adopted as a resolution rather than as an ordinance or law. The comprehensive plan serves as a guide, whereas the zoning ordinance is a legal instrument that is used to implement regulations and provisions that are consistent with the principles of the adopted comprehensive plan.
