Manager's Coffees

Cranberry’s popular Community Coffee series includes plenty of hot java and informal conversation with Cranberry Township Manager Jerry Andree. This casual series of community-based conversations, held monthly at different sites throughout the Township, provides local residents with an opportunity to hear first-hand what Cranberry’s municipal government is thinking about doing, what it’s working on now, what it has recently completed, and to pose their own questions to the Manager.

Venues for the Coffee series in the past have included residential neighborhoods, business locations, and Township facilities.

There is no charge to attend any of the events, and no reservations are required, although RSVPs for planning purposes to 724-776-4806, x 1089 is appreciated.

Cranberry’s electronic maps show things that aren’t even there
You, too, can see the invisible.  Learn how Cranberry Township planners and officials get to see aspects of their community which elude the naked eye.  

A sophisticated geographic information system which provides digital representations of property lines, voting wards, contour lines, zoning boundaries and much, much more will be the topic of a Coffee and Conversation with Township Manager Jerry Andree.  
Much of the information displayed on Property Finder – the name of Cranberry’s interactive map software – is in the public domain and freely available online to anyone with a computer, tablet or smartphone.  Other layers of information are only available to authorized Township staff members and used for traffic planning, stormwater management, water system asset location and related municipal functions.  Cranberry’s first responders and public works personnel also make use of the GIS system to pinpoint emergencies, locate hydrants, and execute other urgent assignments. 

The presentation will provide navigation tips and demonstrate how various layers of data plotted on the Township’s maps can be used by residents, developers and entrepreneurs to plan landscaping, building improvements and new businesses site locations.
