Welcome to the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development

The Indiana County Board of Commissioners established the Indiana County Office of Planning & Development (ICOPD) in 1987 to meet the growing needs of our community. Since its establishment, the ICOPD’s role in County government has continuously evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of the County.


The Office of Planning & Development continues to take a proactive approach to addressing county-wide concerns and issues. Our cooperation with the 14 boroughs and 24 townships throughout the County contributes to the balance between existing land uses and growth considerations so that the quality of life in Indiana County can be improved for future generations.


The overall purpose of the Office of Planning & Development is to facilitate orderly growth and development that contributes to the health, safety, and welfare of the public.


Community Outreach & Planning


Indiana County is developing an Active Transportation Plan to make walking, biking and other modes of active transportation in our community safer, easier and more accessible for everyone. Active transportation is any self-propelled mode of transportation, such as walking, bicycling, e-assisted bikes and scooters, roller blades, skateboards, wheelchairs and even pushing a stroller. Active transportation also includes forms of Public Transit.


An on-line Community Survey and Interactive Comment Map have been created to gain input on biking and walking enhancements, sidewalk and lighting improvements, trail connections, facilities and amenities, safety and access improvements and connections to community destinations.


Please use the following links to access the Indiana County Active Transportation Plan Survey and Comment Map: Survey and Interactive Map.
