Welcome to Crafton!
Crafton, Pennsylvania, a “Tree City USA” community, is one of the best-kept secrets of the Pittsburgh region. With its beautiful, historic Victorian homes, tree-lined streets, and safe neighborhoods, it’s a gem of a borough just 7 miles from downtown Pittsburgh. Crafton’s residents benefit from their close proximity to the Parkway, Interstate 79, the new busway, and the Pittsburgh International Airport. Top this off with a beautiful scenic valley by Chartiers Creek, and you’ll know why generations of families call Crafton home.
Request for Proposals: Zoning Ordinance Update
Crafton Borough is seeking proposals from qualified consultants to provide the professional planning services necessary to complete a full overhaul and re-write of the Borough’s zoning ordinance in response to the 2017 Comprehensive Plan, Crafton-Ingram Thrive. Crafton’s last significant update to the zoning ordinance took place in 2004. Crafton-Ingram Thrive relied heavily on community feedback to inform the plan’s main priorities, which include commercial redevelopment as well as maintaining connectivity and walkability. Crafton Borough must update its zoning ordinance to position itself for smart redevelopment that will take advantage of the West Busway station in the heart of the Downtown Business District (“downtown Crafton”), as well as allow modern mixed-use development in key areas that remain underutilized.
Consultants with experience in transit-oriented development, historical preservation and Main Street redevelopment are encouraged to submit.
All proposals must be received via mail or hand-delivery by August 16, 4:00 PM local prevailing time.
