2017 Community Values Survey for Regional Planning

The Phoenixville Regional Planning Committee (PRPC) works to advance common interests in Phoenixville Borough and the Townships of Charlestown, East Pikeland, Schuylkill, and West Vincent (the Region).  As part of this effort, the Phoenixville Regional Comprehensive Plan is being updated to establish policies for environmental protection, open space, housing, economic development, infrastructure, and community resources.  Please take a few minutes to complete this survey to help define community values and set priorities for the Phoenixville Regional Comprehensive Plan. 

Results of the survey will be discussed at a public workshop at 7:00 PM, June 22, 2017 at the Kimberton Fire Company, 2276 Kimberton Road, Phoenixville PA.  All residents, employers, and property owners of the Region are encouraged to attend the workshop and help the PRPC formulate the goals and objectives for the Comprehensive Plan.
