[ARCHIVED] Board Extends Hearing on Middle Housing Proposal

gavel _red

After hearing feedback from members of the community, the Board of Supervisors will wait another month to consider a proposed ordinance addressing missing middle housing in the Township.

Missing middle housing refers to the types of homes that would attract young families or those older residents looking to downsize. The ordinance change aims to create more choice for potential homebuyers in the community while also providing the amenities they desire, including more walkable neighborhoods that have direct access to retail and recreation options.

The goal, identified in the Cranberry Plan, is to diversify housing options in the Township by providing more opportunities that fall between detached single-family homes and apartment buildings in terms of scale and affordability.  

The proposed zoning overlay, which is optional for potential new developments, applies to areas of 25 acres or more and encourages efficient development of future communities. Developers will continue to be held to the design standards and strict process as outlined by Cranberry’s zoning and planning and development guidelines.

The Board first opened a public hearing on the matter in January and continued that hearing February 25. The hearing was again continued until the March 25 meeting to allow staff to address feedback given by citizens and make changes to the ordinance.
