Charlestown TND Districts

Charlestown Township, PA

In anticipation of a new exit off the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Charlestown Township wanted to focus development of the adjacent greenfields into a cohesive and functional community that attracts employers and residents alike. As the Township’s planning consultant, TCA authored five diverse TND districts with a high degree of design control laid out in the Zoning Ordinance and accompanying Manual of Written and Graphic Design Standards. As part of its ongoing work with the Township, TCA serves on the Design Review Committee to ensure that development applications meet the spirit of creating successful, livable neighborhoods. As of 2015, four projects have been approved under the new TND Ordinance provisions.
