Montgomery County Invites Public to Virtual Meeting on Comprehensive Plan Proposed Updates

2021 Montco 2040 Updates Public Meeting

NORRISTOWN, PA – The Montgomery County Planning Commission invites the public to take part in a virtual public meeting to review proposed updates to the county’s comprehensive plan, Montco2040: A Shared Vision. This virtual meeting will take place on Monday, May 24, 2021 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  

The proposed updates represent adjustments to the adopted 2015 plan and are mostly focused on changes to policy maps, including:

  • Development Potential Plan
  • Future Land Use Plan
  • Existing and Future Sewer Service Areas
  • Existing and Future Water Service Areas
  • Vision Roadway Projects
  • Programmed Roadway Projects
  • Proposed Countywide Trail System

More than five years have passed since Montco 2040: A Shared Vision was adopted, and much has been achieved through the plan’s implementation process. Locally adopted policies and regulations have also informed these proposed changes, which have been reviewed by the county and municipalities. 

While a new comprehensive plan will be prepared for 2025, this current opportunity allows the county to incorporate the changes that have taken place and keep the plan’s policy maps in line with the goals of the plan, which are organized around the central themes of Connected Communities, Sustainable Places, and Vibrant Economy. We look forward to sharing information with the public at the May 24 meeting and gaining any additional feedback on the proposed updates to the plan.

Registration for the May 24 virtual meeting is required to receive a meeting link. Register at Updated maps and the ability to provide online comments is also available on this web page.
