Penn Township Form-Based Code & Official Map

Penn Township, Lancaster County PA

Penn Township adopted a Form-Based Code as its new Zoning Ordinance and SLDO. This code provides the regulatory framework to implement the Manheim Central Region Comprehensive Plan and promote better design.

The new Ordinances promote smart growth and its implementation by focusing on form, mass, scale and placement of structures including mixed land-use compact building design, and walkable neighborhoods. An Official Map reinforces the character and form of development through identification of desired street layout and connections.

TCA received an Envision Leadership Award from the Lancaster County Planning Commission in 2011 for this project. TCA also received an Envision Leadership Award in 2010 for our work in Lititz Borough, the only time a firm has been so recognized in consecutive years.
