Planning Commission

The Cambridge Township Planning Commission has a mission to serve Township citizens with courtesy, integrity, and efficiency, and to provide quality land-use and development evaluations and recommendations designed to maintain and improve the manner in which our citizens live, work, and play.  

The commission consists of nine Township resident members appointed by the Supervisor with Township Board approval.  By State law, one member of the Township Board shall be a Planning Commission member and all members must be qualified Township electors.

The Cambridge Planning Commission has three main functions:

  1. To make and adopt a plan for the Township’s land use and development.  The Cambridge Township Master Land Use Plan presents a vision for the Township’s future growth and development and brings together several planning efforts that the Planning Commission has undertaken to guide its future decision making.
  2. To review and evaluate site plans of potential development in the township.  After completing its review of a site plan the Planning Commission makes a recommendation to the Township Board for final approval or rejection. 
  3. To conduct public hearings and advise the Township Board regarding amendments to the Township Zoning Ordinance.  The ordinance establishes land development regulations, districts, and zones and regulates such elements as land use, building height, lot area, setbacks, parking, signs, and density.  It also establishes permitted activities (land uses) that can be conducted on a property .
