Public Shares Ideas on Landscapes3

Many thanks to those who were able to join us at the first public meeting of 2018 for Landscapes3! We appreciate the level of interest in Chester County’s next comprehensive plan. Meeting attendees asked great questions and explored eight stations focused on different aspects of the plan. These ideas will be considered as the plan is developed.

Six of the stations focused on the plan’s goal areas – Preserve, Protect, Appreciate, Live, Prosper, and Connect. The goal areas reflect the core themes brought forth during the development of Landscapes3. Planning Commission staff was available at each station to address comments or questions. An additional station provided the draft map for review and comment, in both hard copy format and the interactive format. The last station provided attendees the opportunity to consider what amenities they wanted the plan to support (such as active recreation parks or pedestrian amenities), and where in the landscapes those amenities belong.  Continue Reading →
