As a member of the hound family, Nathan navigates by nose so he figured he didn’t need maps. But not all maps are designed for wayfinding. He has spent hours studying a reference map showing Pike County’s residential developments.
The map, showing all planned communities with more than 15 lots, was made by the Pike County Office of Community Planning. It shows 192 communities covering 53,248 acres of land.
The communities have 49,381 lots, of which 53 percent, 25,928 are developed.
The map shows the most developments, 47, in Palmyra Township. Porter Township had five, the fewest developments in Pike County.
The planning office started counting lots in communities in the 1980s Assistant Planning Director Mike Mrozinski said. Last year the information was made into a map.
The map shows the number of total lots and developed lots in each community.
It’s fun to look through the names of communities and find the ones you’ve never heard of.
Some of the smaller communities in the county include Mountain Shadows in Lehman and Delaware Township, Claude Seeley in Palmyra and Symphony West in Shohola.
Pike County’s largest communities are Hemlock Farms in Lords Valley with 3,717 lots, Saw Creek in Bushkill with 2,833 lots and Birchwood Lakes with 2,600 lots in Delaware Township.
That is the type of information you can pull from this map.
You want one, don’t you?
No problem. The communities map is being printed into a pamphlet called “Pike County planning for the future.” In a few weeks the free map will be available throughout the county at municipal buildings.
