Welcome to Dickinson Township

Dickinson Township is located in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Its history revolves around farms, the schools, churches, mills, stores, blacksmith shops and the businesses that supplied them as well as the industries of the mountains which developed the natural resources of wood, iron ore, sand, clay and phosphorous.

NOTICE: The June 26, 2018 Municipal Authority meeting is cancelled due to the lack of agenda items.

NOTICE: Burnt House Road is open to traffic, the contractor used a form of Tar and Chip to address safety concerns from the previous overlay. Please be careful and slow down due to some residaul loose stone. Please keep an eye on the website for further updates.

UPDATE: The Board of Supervisors developed the “DRAFT” proposed Zoning map and combined the proposed commercial uses into the Business Industrial Zone and the Mixed Use Zone. The Board will continue to work on the Zoning Ordinance updates at the first regularly scheduled meeting of every month. The Board will release a draft of the map and the Ordinances once they are further developed and ready for public input and review.


The Dickinson Township staff will forward reminders at the end of September to residents requiring septic pumping. To avoid a rush on the contractors in the area, the community is reminded of the requirement for every owner of an individual sewage system to have septage or other solids removed from the treatment tank at least once every three years. Proof of pumping and/or inspection shall be provided by the owner of the individual system within 30 days of the date of service to the Township. For more information, forms, and a list of septic haulers, please see the Sewage Enforcement section of the website.

CD copies of the Comprehensive Plan are available at the Township building.
