Planning/Community Development - Visioning 2020
In May of 2009, the Citizens of Lower Macungie, in close cooperation with the Board of Commissioners, embarked on an impressive path to evolve a comprehensive Visioning Statement on a multitude of issues that they recognize as being important to the heathly development of their Township. To put this Visioning 2020 Project into motion, a series of steps were taken:
1). Citizens were given the opportunity to comment about Township Strengths
(click on each item to reveiw the results of this survey). Over 220 citizens replied.
2). After receiving such comments, a community meeting was convened on July 27, 2009 with an appointed group of citizens (2020 Visioning Committee), who were given the task to consolidate the multitude of 'comments' into 5 targeted areas: Quality of Life
, Parks & Recreation
, Land Use and Planning
, Public Safety
and Township Government,
and develop a Visioning Statement for each. This finished product would then be presented to the Board of Commissioners at the November 19 Board Meeting .
3). other steps - pending.
