Planning Commission Events

  1. Public Meeting on Draft Montco 2040: A Shared Vision

    September 9, 7:00 PM @ Montgomery County Community College West Campus - Community Room

    The public is invited to attend one of four meetings to let us know what they think about Montgomery County's draft comprehensive plan—Montco 2040: A Shared Vision. This important plan sets a future vision for the county and contains goals, a future land use plan, and proposed transportation projects. It was created after analyzing current conditions and emerging trends and incorporating input received from thousands of residents and a 28-member steering committee. The plan has three major themes: Connected Communities, Sustainable Places, and Vibrant Economy. The county is continuing to grow—with more people, more jobs, and more development—and it's important that we're making the right planning decisions. Join us for a presentation on the plan and an opportunity to contribute feedback. The plan and an online comment form are available at www.montcopa.org/Montco2040. Optional Meeting Dates: September 10, 17, 18.
