Vernon received town center designation from the state planning commission on July 16, 2003. The designation was set to expire June 30, 2020 but due to the COVID-19 health emergency, has been extended until 120 days after the emergency declaration is rescinded.

The Municipal Self-Assessment Report  was submitted to the township council August 24, 2020 and represents the township’s formal petition for plan endorsement to the state planning commission.

Plan endorsement from the state planning commission is the current process to extend Vernon’s town center designation. Plan endorsement reviews the township’s comprehensive plans for consistency with the state plan. The process includes a center designation.
