Join us for Chester County's Spring 2022 Planners' Forum
Posted March 8, 2022
Chester County's spring 2022 Planners' Forum features an exciting lineup of topics touching on important issues such as climate change, equity, affordable housing, and local economic growth! This year's forum will take place as a hybrid event, held both virtually via Zoom and in-person at the West Goshen Township Building from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 31.
Our 2022 speakers include Jon Lesher and Ellis Foley, environmental planners with Montgomery County discussing the county's Climate Change Potential Vulnerability Analysis and how it addresses equity; Spencer Gober, an economic development planner with DVRPC, who will provide an overview of Cultivating a Homegrown Economy; and Thomas Dougherty, a West Chester architect who will discuss the potential transformation of alleys with accessory dwelling units and improved infrastructure.
During the first half hour of the event, those joining the meeting virtually will be put into breakout rooms to chat with other planners, while the planners at the West Goshen Township building will be able to network in person. After the presentations conclude at 9:30 a.m., there will be an opportunity to stay on the call or in person to connect with anyone else participating.
The Planners' Forum provides a great opportunity to hear about current planning issues, share ideas with fellow planners, and catch up with old friends!
