Last year, the Chester County Planning Commission produced the Multi-Modal Circulation Handbook, a resource guide for incorporating all modes of transportation into land use/ land development design. A series of workshops has been planned to serve as an overview for why the Planning Commission produced this document and how it fits with Chester County policy. How and when different design elements should be incorporated into site design and how the Planning Commission incorporates multi-modal concepts into the land development review process will be covered. Typical development scenarios will illustrate how all transportation modes can be accommodated in a variety of land use types, and tools for municipalities to do multi-modal transportation planning will be discussed. Additionally, attendees will hear testimony from local professionals working in the public sector, land development, and non-profit on the importance of planning for all modes.
The workshops will be held on April 13th in Jennersville, April 15th in Downingtown, and April 29th in Phoenixville. All are from 8:30-11:00am and free of charge. Each workshop has been approved for 1.25 CM credits. More details are available at:www.chesco.org/planning/mmh
