Silver Spring Township Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Plan Update

In the past 20 years, growth pressure, traffic increases, greater demand for public services, and increased pressure on sensitive resources have made changes to the Township’s traditional rural landscape. These changes are of clear concern to the Township whose overarching goal is to retain its traditional rural character and quality of life for its residents while still addressing and responding to inevitable change. The Township recognizes a balance is needed between meeting changing demands and the ability of the land to sustain development and new uses. Through the revision to the Comprehensive Plan, the Township seeks to establish principles on which planning decisions are based on environmentally sound and sustainable principles, infrastructure capabilities, and the need to meet legal requirements.
