Planning Commission Welcomes New Community Planner

The Planning Commission welcomed a new employee in June: Community Planner Kate Clark.

Kate began working for the agency on June 25. As a community planner in the Planning Services Division, Kate will be working to implement Landscapes2 (and eventually Landscapes3) through direct assistance to municipalities. Through the Vision Partnership Program and other efforts, the Planning Services Division assists municipalities with comprehensive planning, regulatory updates, and special studies. 

“Of my endeavors in planning, I am most appreciative for the opportunity to serve Chester County, a community that I truly consider to be home,” she said. “I look forward to being part of future projects and plans involving our community.”

Kate previously worked as a planner for New Castle County in Delaware. She also was a planner for the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission. In both of these positions, she reviewed land development proposals and worked extensively with a number of topics in zoning and subdivision regulation.

Kate has a bachelor’s degree in geography and minors in urban planning and sociology from Rowan University in New Jersey. She is pursuing a master’s degree in public administration at West Chester University.

A New Jersey native, Kate currently resides in West Chester. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time with her dogs.
