NORRISTOWN PA – Residents of six Central Perkiomen Valley municipalities are being asked now to help plan their future.
The Central Perkiomen Valley Regional Planning Commission is ready to begin updating its comprehensive plan, last adopted in February 2014. The commission helps guide growth and development across Perkiomen, Lower Frederick, and Upper Frederick townships, and Schwenksville, Trappe, and Collegeville boroughs.
Their populations this week were urged to take a short survey about what they believe the revised plan should contain. Public comments were an integral part of the 2014 plan as well.
The survey, available online, takes only 10 or fewer minutes to complete, but it’s expected to have an impact on the next 20 years. Public participation in launching the process is invaluable, officials claim. They will rely on the input to understand and prioritize regional needs and goals.
“The more responses officials get, the better they can tailor the plan” to community needs, according to an e-mail distributed Saturday (Sept. 16) by Lower Frederick.
The update is scheduled to occur during 2024, and intends to cover the region’s growth through 2044. “Make your voices heard!,” the Lower Frederick e-mail added. “Let us know what you love about the Central Perkiomen Valley,” a commission promotional graphic agreed, “and what you want to see improved.”
