[ARCHIVED] Recreation fees could extend to non-residential buildings

A public hearing on a proposed amendment to Cranberry’s land development ordinance which would assess one-time recreational fees on new commercial and institutional buildings in the Township concluded at the Board of Supervisors’ May 29 meeting. Since the mid-1990s, only residential units have been charged the fee – currently $1,050 per living unit, $1,022 if the new amendment is adopted – payable at the time its building permit is issued. Alternatively, as part of their projects, developers could, using a formula in the ordinance, dedicate land for use as a public recreational facility, but few actually choose to do so, largely because the cost of land is typically greater than the fee. The proposed recreational fee ordinance change would assess all non-commercial structures, except for public schools and municipal buildings at $918 for every 2,500 square feet under roof. Recreational fees would be used to finance Cranberry’s Recreation and Parks Master Plan. Cranberry’s Board will consider adopting the amendment on June 5. Several additional technical changes are also included in the ordinance amendment. For more information, contact Community Development Director Ron Henshaw at
