Denver Borough Official Map Project

The Kick-Off Meeting for the 2020 Denver Borough Official Map Project is scheduled for Tuesday, February 25, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., at the Denver Borough Municipal Building, 501 Main Street, Denver.  During the Kick-Off Meeting, representatives from the Denver Planning Commission, with the assistance of Brad Stewart, Senior Community Planner with the Lancaster County Planning Commission, will provide a summary of what is an Official Map and the process in Denver Borough to develop an Official Map.

An Official Map is a map and ordinance that shows existing public lands and designations for future public lands and facilities in a municipality.  Facilities are designated to address issues such as bicycle and pedestrian paths, existing and proposed parks and open spaces, intersection improvements, road extensions, stormwater facilities, and flood improvement areas.

The Official Map will be used to establish the long-term planning efforts of the Borough to provide for additional public facilities and safety improvements and thus it is critical to have participation and input from key stakeholders and residents in the community in the development of this financing and planning document.

Listed below is an overview of the proposed Official Map topics and schedule for Denver Borough.  The meetings will be open to the public and will include the use of maps, plans, and interactive activities to help our community depict potential future public facilities and to establish a process for the Borough to facilitate construction of these facilities.
