Area Wide Planning Agency Designation
Whereas, the Bolivar Borough recognizes that the Southwestern Pennsylvania Regional Planning Commission is responsible for preparing an overall plan or development for the many phases of regional planning activity (such as transportation, open space, water and sewer planning) in the six counties of southwestern Pennsylvania without assuming any existing powers or functions of the planning commissions of the local municipalities.
Whereas, the Bolivar borough desires to insure a continuance of area wide planning with increased involvement of local officials in county and regional programs, and
Whereas, the Bolivar Borough recognizes and accepts the desirability and necessity of creating a local government participation committee to the County Planning Commission or Department made up of selected representatives of the various unites of local government and which committee shall have representation on the Southwestern Pennsylvania Regional Planning Commission as described in the attached Articles of Agreement among the counties of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Washington and Westmoreland and the City of Pittsburgh for the reorganization of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Regional Planning Commission.
Whereas, the Bolivar Borough recognizes the need for carrying out the continuing, comprehensive transportation planning process in a cooperative manner, as required by the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1962, that will insure that the planning decisions are reflective of and responsive to both the needs and desires of the local communities and programs of the Pennsylvania Department of Highways.
Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved this 3rd day of November 1969, by the Borough Council of Bolivar that,
1. The Bolivar council is aware of the role of the Southwestern Pennsylvania Regional Planning commission in developing continuing area wide planning programs (including, among others, transportation, open space, water and sewer planning) that help to interrelate and coordinate planning of individual municipalities and the counties, and
2. The Bolivar Council recognizes that the Southwestern Pennsylvania Regional Planning Commission is the representative agency to continue area wide planning for this and adjoining municipalities, to perform planning at the regional scale in the southwestern Pennsylvania area and to act as the area wide review agency.
The Borough of Bolivar
