Corrective Action Process (CAP)

When a question arises regarding property ownership, parcel identification numbers, plan correctness, etc., there shall be a process to determine the proper corrective action, which will require the agreement of representatives of the York County Planning Commission, the Tax Assessment Office, and the Recorder of Deeds Office. The governing municipality(ies) shall also be contacted to determine their recommended course of action.

The following steps will be taken to clarify these questions:

  1. When it is presumed by a representative from any of the above three offices that a corrective action will need to be taken, the applicant shall be asked to complete a Corrective Action Request Form.  These forms will be available at each of these three offices as well as an online fillable form.  The purpose of the form will be to identify the error as defined by the applicant, and the action(s) which the applicant wishes to take.
  2. Upon receipt of a completed form, the CAP request shall be placed on the agenda for the next scheduled CAP request work session, which is held on the second Wednesday of every month (request forms and all supporting information must be submitted by the end of the current month to be placed on the following month’s agenda). Representatives from the three offices will discuss any submissions at these work sessions, and determine the proper course of action.
  3. After the work session, and after there is agreement that a specific action(s) will be necessary to correct the identified problem(s), the applicant will be notified of the corrective action(s) needed to be taken. The agency in which the problem was identified will notify the applicant of the necessary action(s).

There may be a number of options available for these corrective actions.
