Welcome, Your Input Matters!

The City of Lock Haven is updating our Comprehensive Plan! This Plan will provide action oriented strategies focused on community priorities.  We are placing a high priority on the planning process and on public outreach and collaboration. This Survey is an additional method being used to obtain input from residents, City staff and officials, community organizations, groups and service providers.  Meaningful engagement ensures that community priorities are identified and achievable projects and action items are developed.

The Lock Haven Comprehensive Plan Project is managed by Abigail Roberts, City of Lock Haven Planner and Development Coordinator with support from City Manager, Gregory Wilson. For further information on the Planning process or Public Outreach opportunities, please contact Abigail at aroberts@lockhavenpa.gov.

Please take the Survey even if you already participated in a public outreach session.  Your perceptions and comments will help in this planning process.  Thank You!
