On Thursday July 22, 2016, Jake Michael of the Planning Commission staff gave a presentation at the Chester County 2020 Citizen Planner Breakfast about the how local planning is adapting to meet the needs of Millennial Generation. How Chester County’s communities will adapt to the changing housing and employment needs of Millennials is become a significant planning issue, since this generation now comprises roughly a quarter of the population.

The primary topics include housing, education, employment and transit choices since these could significantly impact planning decisions. View presentation.
