Smart Growth Solutions

for southern Chester County

S.A.V.E.'s mission is to preserve the quality of life and community character of southern Chester County through Smart Growth principles that support safe transportation, agriculture, villages & the environment.

The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania's public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people.

- Pennsylvania Constitution, Section 27. Natural Resources and the Public Estate
