Economic Development Authority
The Economic Development Authority was incorporated on April 14, 2008. It envisioned and coordinated projects to enhance Annville’s viability. Building on a successful streetscape renovation, several years ago the Authority completed a downtown revitalization project which provided additional free parking and attracted new businesses to renovated structures. Upon achieving its original goal, the EDA was dissolved in 2019 and transferred its assets to the Township.
The Historic Architectural Review Board (HARB) considers proposals for changes to the exterior of buildings in the historic district, provides advice and ultimately recommends approval of the plans or not according to the provisions of the HARB ordinance (Chapter 4 of the Code of Ordinances). The board also reviews all proposals for demolition or new construction in the historic area. Click here for more information.
