After more than a year of preparation and input from the public and elected officials, the Streetscape and Transportation Improvement Plan in the Village of Toughkenamon has finally been completed, writes Richard Gaw for the Chester County Press.
“Overall, the public response we received was really helpful in shaping the recommendations in the plan, so throughout the process, we refined our ideas based on the public input we received,” said Natasha Manbeck of McMahon Associates.
The plan creates a streetscape concept for the village and presents ways to improve transportation and mobility. It also offers ideas on improving the village aesthetics, including creating more diversity in local housing and stimulating investment opportunities.
Additionally, there are ideas for safe routes to public transportation, crosswalks, pedestrian amenities, and landscaping. It also makes proposals for increased walkability, new road connections, and more parking, among many other things.
The main goal of the plan is to re-imagine Toughkenamon as a thriving, walkable, and mixed-use village.
The final plan can be viewed on the New Garden Township website.
