Announcements and Events

For the safety of our staff and the public, and in accordance with directives from Governor Wolf and the Cambria County Commissioners, the Cambria County Planning Commission office is presently closed to the public. However, all staff are working remotely and are available via email. Click on the staff tab of this website for staff email addresses.

All LTAP classes are cancelled.

Staff will continue to accept subdivision and land development plans for review. An electronic submittal is the preferred method of submission for the foreseeable future. We request that you email smurphy@co.cambria.pa.us or eimhoff@co.cambria.pa.us to coordinate plan reviews. You can also call the office at (814) 472-2106. Response times will be quicker via email.

We appreciate your patience, wish you good health, and will continue to post to this website with updates to our business hours and operating procedures.

Ethan Imhoff, Executive Director
