Planning Commission

The Huntingdon County Planning Commission is directly responsible to the Board of County Commissioners and is responsible for preparing plans for the County in areas of: transportation, land use, economy and employment, community services, conservation, recreation and open space, sewer and water, solid waste, energy, and housing.
