Planning Commission Provides Update about Landscapes3

The Chester County Planning Commission continues to advance the development of Landscapes3, the county’s next comprehensive plan, with the help of partners, stakeholders, and the public.

As part of this process, the Planning Commission has gathered experts’ opinions during stakeholder meetings about preservation, agriculture, housing, utilities and infrastructure, transportation, and economic development. The stakeholder meetings are wrapping up with one more about community health, which will take place from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. May 18 at the Chester County Intermediate Unit, 455 Boot Road, Downingtown. 

In addition, the Planning Commission has plans to release a public survey in mid-May in an effort to gather additional input about Landscapes3 from county residents and various stakeholders.

The Planning Commission staff also will be attending several community events throughout the county in the upcoming months to talk to residents about Landscapes3, seek their feedback, and discuss the public survey. For instance, some Planning Commission employees attended Opening Trails Day along the Chester Valley Trail on April 8. The staff will set up a promotional booth at Sheep and Wool Day at Springton Manor Farm on April 29. Click here to check out details about future events.

Toward the end of the summer, the Landscapes3 Steering Committee will form and begin to conduct public meetings about the vision and goals of the plan in the fall.
