[ARCHIVED] Board drops conditions for permitting certain business uses

Companies seeking occupancy permits for indoor businesses which are considered either recreational or instructional in nature can now get off the ground more quickly in Cranberry. On September 5, the Township’s Board of Supervisors adopted a revision to the Township’s zoning ordinance to separate certain instructional uses from others classified as “commercial and private recreation.” The change defines indoor recreation and instructional facilities to be uses by right in all of the Township’s commercial zoning districts. That is expected to hasten the permitting process for businesses such as dance studios and martial arts schools by eliminating the lengthy and expensive process involved in determining whether special conditions need to be met in order to mitigate the company’s impacts on neighboring properties.
