The public is getting the chance to weigh in on the future of Chester County at a series of public meetings on Landscapes3, the county’s next long-range plan that balances preservation and development, writes Danielle Lynch for The Pottstown Mercury.
The first meeting was held on March 6. At the meetings, the Planning Commission is hoping to get input on the goals and objectives of the plan.
“The goal of tonight – and for all the public meetings – is to get public input. We take it all in,” said David Brant, an East Goshen resident and steering committee member.
Brant took part in the interactive map activity held during the open house portion of the meeting. This allows people to highlight the aspects of Chester County that are important to them.
Chester County Commissioner Kathi Cozzone said during the formal presentation that, through previous and current versions of Landscapes, the county was “able to redirect growth, preserve land, improve our transportation system, and strengthen our towns.”
