Question: What is a Municipal Comprehensive Plan?

Answer: The long answer is defined in the 103 page Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code - Act of 1968, P.L. 805, No. 247. The complete PDF file of the Act is here for those who enjoy reading.


The following short definition describes a Municipal Comprehensive Plan and its essential details.

A Municipal Comprehensive Plan is both a vision for the future and a blueprint for change. Once adopted, it becomes a fundamental part of a city’s policy - serving as both an inspiration for a broad (comprehensive) range of city actions and a standard by which those actions can be measured. A comprehensive plan guides city leaders in decisions associated with growth and development, recreation and park land, commercial and industrial facilities, historic and cultural resources, transportation, utilities, housing and economic development and more.

Fundamentally, a comprehensive plan is what we, the city and all of its moving parts, make of it over time. It is a living, breathing, evolving document - a written agreement the city makes with itself. However, before a plan can be adopted it must be created. A good plan has the input and support of the city’s residents and businesses therefore, community participation in the planning process is essential.

To that end, McKeesport’s leaders have designed a community survey that provides both residents and businesses with the opportunity to participate in the planning process. The published survey identifies elements that have been key in successful plans. In addition, the design provides participants with the means to prioritize concerns and share constructive ideas or suggestions with leadership. However, before that work begins, leadership needs to understand those priorities and concerns.

Completing the community survey is the first step in public participation and plan creation. Following the release of the survey findings, public meetings will be held to share background information, vision, goals and discuss recommendations. Survey results will be used, in part, by the community leaders for reference in creating a citywide comprehensive plan. Please complete the online survey at the link below.

 The online survey can be completed here.

 The City of McKeesport and its partners want to hear from you. Take a moment to ask yourself and/or discuss with neighbors changes which could have a positive effect on living conditions in our community?  What can the city do to make the community better for you and your family? More important, how can you contribute to the effort? A good start is completing the survey.

Survey hard copies are also available at the Public Safety Building (201 Lysle Blvd.) or at Carnegie Library (1507 Library Ave.)
