The Comprehensive Plan serves as the overriding vision and guide to both the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors when considering changes to Township ordinances and/or subdivision and land development applications. The Growth Management Plan has served as the comprehensive plan for Westtown since its adoption by the Board of Supervisors in 2001.
Beginning in 2017, Westtown worked in conjunction with a consultant team and a Task Force of appointed residents to fully update the plan. This planning process was citizen-driven, and built upon the Township’s rich history in an effort to develop a document that reflects both contemporary Westtown and how we will continue to thrive for future generations. The Act 247 review as required by the Municipalities Planning Code to gather input from contiguous municipalities, Chester County Planning Commission and West Chester Area School District was completed in February, 2019.
The Board of Supervisors adopted the Comprehensive Plan Update on March 18, 2019. The Comprehensive Plan document below reflects efforts of multiple participants who dedicated their personal time, provided professional expertise and guidance, and assisted in formulating a future for the community they love and live in.
As of April 2022, a minor text and map amendment is currently under review to strengthen the recommendations for open space protections and provide an update to the future land use map to reflect the Township’s efforts to preserve Crebilly Farm as an open space asset.
