Comprehensive Land Use Plan
West Chester's Land Use Planning Committee has been working since May 2011 to update the community's Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The plan was last updated in 2004.
The Comprehensive Land Use Plan represents the "vision" for land development in the Township.
When recommending its changes, The Land Use Planning Committee takes into consideration each corridor, current land use designations, road projects and changes in terms of development since the previous document was adopted.
The Land Use Planning Committee is a seven-member volunteer board composed of West Chester residents appointed by the Board of Trustees. The Committee is charged with updating the West Chester Comprehensive Land Use Plan. During updates to the plan, the Committee meets regularly to approve new language, confers with interested property owners to consider their views, and holds public forums to obtain resident feedback. The Committee ultimately takes the proposed Land Use Plan to the West Chester Board of Trustees for adoption.
