Coordinated with the Borough's Revitalization Plan and accepted in 2015, the study was funded by the Borough and a VPP cash grant.

Atglen Borough — Zoning Ordinance
Atglen Borough retained the Chester County Planning Commission to assist them with a full update of their zoning ordinance that brought the ordinance into conformity with current planning practices. The updated ordinance addresses nonconforming uses, signs, definitions, and land uses not envisioned when the ordinance was first developed. Traditional Neighborhood Development requirements were incorporated into the "downtown" zoning district and a new "gateway" district leading from Route 41 into the Borough. A new transit oriented development (TOD) district was developed surrounding the future Atglen train station site north of the Amtrak railroad. The Atglen Borough Zoning Ordinance, adopted in 2015, was funded by the Borough and a VPP in-kind grant.
