Smart Growth Solutions

for southern Chester County

Our 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 and 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

A new website has been launched for the update to the county's comprehensive plan. Please see for information about Landscapes3.

PA Route 41 Project News:

There have been no recent updates from PennDOT officials, but studies continue to be conducted for the various alternatives for intersection improvements. See for details.


We are excited to be part of the first phase of the process, which includes understanding the issues through various stakeholder meetings. The original Landscapes plan set the stage for the preservation of open space in Chester County.
