At its July 27, 2020 meeting, the Bridgeville Borough Planning Commission set its sights on two primary objectives for the near future.
First, the group wants to lay the groundwork to create a new comprehensive plan—a document that serves as a roadmap for the borough’s future, including traffic, parking, pedestrian safety, zoning, and other areas of concern.
Typically, it takes two to three years to create a comprehensive plan. During the next few months, the commissioners will work with borough officials to create a request for proposals from firms that specialize in creating such documents.
The planning commission’s second—and perhaps more immediate—goal is to find ways to make Bridgeville more pedestrian-friendly. While large-scale, expensive changes would likely fall under the auspices of the comprehensive plan, planning commissioners hope to identify some less-expensive improvements that can be made in the short term.
