The updated Comprehensive Land Use Plan was approved by the Board of Commissioners at their public meeting on Monday, June 16, 2003. This update, the 1st since 1988, has involved not only the Township staff and consultant, but also a large cross-section of residents with expertise and general interest in land use, planning, natural resources, and other community services.
Structure of Plan
The update is structured around several topical areas: Natural Resources; Housing, Demographics, and Socioeconomics; Economics and Business; Transportation; Open Space and Recreation; Historical and Archaeological Resources; Institutions; Community Services and Facilities; and Existing Land Use and the Land Use Plan.
A hard copy of the Comprehensive Plan is available at the Township Municipal Building and Radnor Memorial Library for public inspection during normal business hours. A Citizens Guide to the Comprehensive Plan was mailed to all township residents in 2004.
A Big Thank You
The Township owes a debt of gratitude to the residents who guided the development of the Comprehensive Plan through their membership on the blue ribbon Steering Committee, appointed by the Board of Commissioners. Those members are: Steve Paolantonio and Wayne Leighton, Co-Chairs, Cheryl Tumola, Robin Mann, John Simon, Mac McCoy, Steve Bajus, John Fischer, and Dottie Ives-Dewey.
The implementation of the Comprehensive Land Use Plan continues to be guided by members of the Comprehensive Plan Implementation Committee.
