The review of community council boundaries is required by Borough Code. The goal in the review of the community council boundaries is to ensure that all properties located within the Core Area are represented by a community council; and that the boundaries are contiguous, thus removing "holes" within the Core Area.
This proposal will provide residents within the Core Area the opportunity for greater public involvement in Borough activities through a community council. In preparation for the 2020 Census, the Borough completed participation in the Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) project. This process allowed the Borough the opportunity to review and update the US Census residential address list for the Borough. By updating the Core Area community council boundaries we will then have the necessary justification to update the boundaries of the Census Designated Places within the Core Area. This will allow the Borough to get an accurate count of the population within the Core Area.

In an effort to have the boundaries updated before the PSAP deadline; the Planning Department has put together a tentative schedule:
