1. Highway Occupancy Permit (HOP)
As required by PennDOT, to access a State Road a Highway Occupancy Permit is needed. In York County, PennDOT requires a “review of awareness” from the York County Planning Commission for low, medium and high volume driveways. Local street access is reviewed as well. This procedure consists of review of the proposed site, and then a staff member will stamp, initial, and date the HOP application. If the HOP uses the e-permitting process, a staff member will review the proposed site and send a PDF letter to the HOP applicant.
2. Land Development and Traffic Impact Study
The YCPC Transportation Department conducts reviews of subdivision and land development plans, and traffic impact studies. These reviews complement the reviews conducted by the YCPC Municipal Planning Division Department. The emphasis of these reviews is on capacity, safety, and access issues associated with the proposed site and surrounding area.
3. Traffic Impact Fee Ordinance
The YCPC Transportation Division conducts reviews of proposed municipal Transportation Impact Fee Ordinances. These ordinances set forth a description of the boundaries and a fee schedule for each transportation service area. The Transportation Division, in conjunction with the Long Range Planning Division, also conducts reviews of Land Use Assumptions reports, which are required prior to enactment of impact fee ordinances, which are intended to determine future growth and development potential within the designated services areas, and which are the basis for the development of the transportation capital improvements plan.
4. Municipal Comprehensive Plans
The YCPC Transportation Department conducts reviews of transportation elements of municipal comprehensive plans, including official maps, and land use ordinances. Upon request, the Transportation Department provides technical assistance to municipalities in the development of these documents.
