WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County Planning Commission recently announced that the Fall Planners’ Forum will take place on Wednesday, October 6, both in-person at the East Bradford Township Building (and virtually via Zoom) from 8:00 am – 10:00 am. This year’s forum will celebrate 25 years of the county’s Vision Partnership Program (VPP), with three excellent municipal presentations on successfully using planning to reach a community’s goals.
Presenters will include Mandie Cantlin, East Bradford Township Manager, who will describe the township’s extensive open space preservation planning efforts, Tony Scheivert, Upper Uwchlan’s Manager, who will summarize smart growth and village preservation successes, and Matt Fetick, Mayor of Kennett Square, along with Doug Doerfler, Council Member, who will highlight Kennett Borough’s successful revitalization and redevelopment.
The first half-hour of the event (8:00 am – 8:30 am) will be networking time, where those joining the meeting via Zoom will be placed into breakout rooms to chat with other planners, and the in-person attendees will be able to network at the East Bradford Township Building. After the presentations conclude at 9:30 am, there will be an opportunity to stay on the call, or in-person, to connect with other participants and presenters.
The Planning Commission states the Planners’ Forum will provide a great opportunity to hear about current planning issues, share ideas with fellow planners, and catch up with old friends. Attendees are being asked to register as either in person or virtually prior to the event.
