Regional Comprehensive Plan

The Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (MPC) calls for municipalities in the Commonwealth to prepare or update comprehensive plans every ten (10) years. Such plans are intended to identify issues facing communities and to lay out those steps that are to be taken to address them and shape a community’s desired future. The MPC also provides for multiple municipalities to plan together in recognition that land uses and their impacts, and community life and its issues transcend municipal boundaries. Given the region’s tradition of collaboration among its municipalities, West Donegal Township in collaboration with Elizabethtown Borough, Mount Joy Township and Conoy Township maintain a regional comprehensive plan for the northwest region of the County.

The regional comprehensive plan was first adopted in 1989. It was updated in 1997 and again in 2010. The Municipalities and the County are currently in the process of updating the 2010 plan to coordinate it with the County's recently adopted comprehensive plan entitled Places 2040.
