The Chester County Planning Commission, a nine-member advisory board appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, has released its Annual Report for 2017.
This past year’s work at the Planning Commission continues to reflect its mission: to provide future growth and preservation plans to citizens, so that they can enjoy a Chester County that is historic, green, mobile, and prosperous.
The county championed three major initiatives to balance the vision of managing growth and preservation, while maintaining the quality of life and sense of place enjoyed by residents:
- Build working partnerships. The county is joining with municipal governments and stakeholders to develop productive partnerships that champion specific actions to achieve the vision of Landscapes.
- Create sustainable communities. The county is working with the state, municipal governments, and other partners to build and enhance sustainable communities within designated growth areas.
- Keep Chester County green. The county is advocating for a green future.
“We are looking forward to a prosperous 2018 and will need your help to continue making Chester County the best place to live, work, and play,” said Matthew Hammond, Chairman of the Chester County Planning Commission. “Please go to www.chescoplanning.org to see the latest information the Chester County Planning Commission has to offer.”
