Building and Land Development
All building and land development plans should be submitted to the Township office for review by the Upper Yoder Township Planning Commission, the Township Engineer, and the Township Supervisors. This includes any land development projects as well as any subdivision of land. Applications are available from the Township office or this web site. Applicable fees will apply for each project. All plans will be reviewed by the respective officials and when approved, signatures will be applied to the plans for recording at the Cambria County Court House, if applicable.
