Take the Public Survey for Western Extension of the Chester Valley Trail

The Chester County Planning Commission is currently studying the feasibility of extending the Chester Valley Trail westward to the Lancaster County line.

Your feedback and ideas are needed to help shape the plan. Please click here to take the public survey, which will close on Friday, Feb. 16.

SAVE THE DATE:  The Chester County Planning Commission (CCPC) is holding a public meeting about the plan to extend the Chester Valley Trail on Thursday, March 1 from 6:30-8:30 pm with a presentation at 7:00 pm at The Point in Parkesburg PA.  The results of the public survey on this project will be revealed, as well as a brief overview of the project and update on the process.  This is your chance to give feedback on potential routes the trail could take through Western Chester County.  Both before and after the presentation there will be opportunities to provide specific feedback on potential alignment alternatives that have been developed.  Input received at this meeting will help shape the recommended alignment, which will be presented later this year.

Families are welcome and light refreshments will be provided.

Please note that as an attendee of this meeting, you agree to the release of photos that may be taken and used on the CCPC website, social media sites, and publications.
