  9. Land Use Analysis: In terms of both total acreage and number of properties, Mon Township has the largest collection of industrial land uses in the Southeastern Greene County Planning Area. These sites are generally dedicated to coal extraction and are mostly concentrated at two locations:
    1. One concentration of industrial properties is the mines in the Alicia community.
    2. Another is in the Poland Mines community on Dunkard Creek and the Shannonpin Mines site on the Mon River.
    Agricultural uses and Clean and Green properties make up the majority of land uses in Monongahela Township. A majority of Clean and Green designated land can be found surrounding Greensboro Borough and the Glassworks Community. The preservation of large tracts of land around these settlements gives a clear demarcation between developable areas and countryside, creating greater opportunity for denser, more pedestrian friendly mixed-use areas.
