Landscapes2 is Chester County's comprehensive policy plan. It establishes growth management and preservation strategies to guide municipalities, developers, preservationists, and others in making decisions that promote sustainable practices and ensure that future residents have access to the same benefits that we currently enjoy.
The goal for land use is to preserve and enhance the diversified mix of land uses within the urban, suburban, rural, agricultural, and natural landscapes to maintain a balance between growth and preservation.
