Countywide Action Plan

Cumberland County has initiated the development of a Countywide Action Plan, which will identify Cumberland County’s local role to implement goals outlined in Pennsylvania’s Phase III Watershed Implementation Plan (PA Phase 3 WIP).   The planning process is co-lead by the Planning Department and Conservation District.  Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc. (HRG), in partnership with Lancaster Farmland Trust, has been hired as a consulting coordinator for plan development and implementation.

A stakeholder kickoff meeting occurred on January 29, 2020 with regulatory representatives, non-profits, local municipal government, and property owners. Refer to the Kickoff Meeting Presentation - Cumberland County Action Plan below in the "Planning Documents" section of this website.

If you have any questions, or would like to become involved in the process, please email Elizabeth Grant, Planning Specialist at egrant@ccpa.net or call 717-240-6377.
