CountyCorp, Harrison Township, and Montgomery County have undertaken a planning exercise for an area encompassing the former Forest Park Plaza and its neighboring properties.  This design and planning exercise will provide a vision and development strategy.  The process will be led by key feedback coming from neighboring property and business owners. The survey below will help in gaining that feedback about the current state of the study area and thoughts for its future.
