Livable Landscapes Map Unveiled
The centerpiece of the County’s policy plan, Landscapes, is a map entitled "Livable Landscapes for Chester County". This map depicts the location of designated growth and preservation areas within Chester County.
In recognition of the diversity of our county, the map is divided into a series of landscape types which depict areas of the county based on their distinguishing characteristics. Landscape types include the four original Rural, Suburban, Urban, and Natural landscapes and the introduction of the Agrarian landscape in western Chester County. The map also recognizes areas of the county that include resources of national significance, including Valley Forge National Historic Park, Brandywine Battlefield Landmark, and the Hopewell Big Woods.
The Chester County Planning Commission invites you to review the draft map, land use policies, and landscape descriptions on-line and offer your comments at landscapes2.org.
