Housing Options Task Force


Mission Statement

Support the Goals, Objectives, and Policies of the Landscapes2 Plan for Housing and achieve implementation of the Plan Actions through partnership efforts between the private, public, and non-profit sectors.


The Housing Options Task Force was a first step in implementing the housing element of Landscapes2. The Planning Commission was joined by the Department of Community Development, the Homebuilders Association of Chester and Delaware Counties, the Suburban West Realtors Association, and the Suburban Realtors Alliance, in a partnership that formed a core group from which the Task Force was developed. The Chester County Affordable Housing Forum in 2010 kicked off the Task Force's activities, including a series of workshops where more than 25 stakeholders from around the County gathered to discuss the issue of housing affordability. Many of the stakeholders in attendance at these workshops agreed to serve on the Task Force. The Executive Committee continues to provide input on CCPC activities relating to housing.
