Project Review Workbook

The Upper Delaware Council’s updated 2020 Project Review Workbook is the main document used to perform substantial conformance and project review for member towns.

Outlined is the process and procedure for review to ensure development remains consistent with the intent of the River Management Plan, Land and Water Use Guidelines and the Upper Delaware Legislation.

Project Review Checklist & Cover Forms

As the first step in the project review process, municipalities are requested to submit a complete application for a challenge or variance that is occurring within the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River corridor boundary, along with a completed cover form, to the Upper Delaware Council (for UDC member towns and townships) or the National Park Service (for non-UDC member towns and townships).

Section II:

Section II : Reviewing Challenges and Variances Checklist (PDF) >>

After filling out the checklist, complete this cover form to submit along with the project application. This cover form helps UDC staff to get an overview of the proposed project.
