Montrose Discusses Submissions, Permits

People looking to submit applications to the Montrose Borough Planning Commission will need to follow a new application procedure. The Planning Commission sought, and received, approval for minor application changes, citing less strain on the Borough Secretary and greater efficiency in processing requests as reasons for this. A revised application cover sheet will explain the changes to applicants. The current procedure requires a one-page application form and the submission of drawings of the proposed project. This is given to the Borough secretary, who then copies and distributes it to Planning Commission members. The new system has three new requirements: 1.) a cover letter describing the project, listing the names of any landowners involved, and providing any other pertinent information not given by the standard application, 2.) a telephone number where the applicant can be reached (to be included in the aforementioned cover letter), and 3.) the applicant must send copies of the entire submission to each of the Planning Commission Members by regular US mail. The entire submission must be received no later than two weeks prior to the regularly scheduled Planning Commission meeting for that month (the third Monday of any given month).

Hazard Mitigation Meeting

Susquehanna County will hold its first public meeting on Wednesday, April 11, 7:00 p.m. to launch the process for developing and adopting a plan to reduce the impacts of natural hazards in the county. The meeting will be held at the Harford Fire Hall.

In an effort to motivate tribes, states, and local governments to comply with the law, Congress linked the mandated plans with the availability of Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs funds (HMGP). Currently, none of the municipalities or the county have developed and adopted a hazard mitigation plan.
