Planning commission to discuss 2040 at open house meeting


The Bucks County Planning Commission (BCPC) has been hosting a series of open house meetings this fall to engage the public on the “Bucks2040” comprehensive plan update.
Interested citizens can view displays and express their comments to project staff. Opportunities will be provided to let participants give their vision for the future of Bucks County.
The open house meetings feature displays on the Bucks2040 comprehensive plan and important trends since the last plan update in 2011.
BCPC staff have been hosting the open house meeting at three separate locations to enable residents from all parts of the county to participate. The third open house meeting is from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Warrington Township Administration Office, 852 Easton Road, Warrington, Nov. 16. The previous meetings were held in Quakertown and Lower Makefield.
The update to the 2011 comprehensive plan will form a collective vision for the county and set a direction for future policies and programs. Bucks 2040 will focus on the quality-of-life issues that are most important to Bucks County residents and will help communities achieve better land use outcomes.

Residents unable to make any of the public meeting are encouraged to visit the open house virtual meeting room,, where they will be able to view the meeting displays, provide comments and ask questions.
