About the Department

The Bradford County Department of Community Planning & Mapping Services acts as the administrative agency for the Bradford County Planning Commission under the direction of the Bradford County Commissioners. The Department currently retains a five member staff consisting of the Planning Director, County Planner, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Coordinator, GIS Planning Analyst and Administrative Assistant. The Planning staff plays a significant role in providing community development and planning services to a host of individuals that include developers, landowners, state and regional agencies including local municipal officials within Bradford County.
