Township staff will continue to work on diversifying housing to meet the Cranberry Plan’s vision while also taking community feedback into consideration.
The Board of Supervisors withdrew an ordinance related to missing middle housing during its March 25 meeting to give staff more time to work on the effort. The ordinance aimed to create more diverse housing options as called for in Cranberry’s long-range plan. During public hearings earlier this year, community members offered feedback and suggestions on the proposal.
Dick Hadley, Board Chairman, said both Board members and Township staff take feedback to heart. He said he believes a revised ordinance can meet both the long-range goals of the Cranberry Plan while also addressing feedback raised during public hearings.
“In Cranberry, we’ve always listened to our residents and taken constructive feedback,” he said. “By taking a little more time with this issue, we can make sure we are creating an ordinance that addresses those concerns and sets Cranberry up for success in the future.”
The effort will be revisited over the next several months.
