From Consultant Firms Interested in Preparation of a
“Selective Comprehensive Plan Update”
(Release Date: February 21, 2017)
A number of plans have been completed and adopted as amendments to the 2003 Comprehensive Plan. These various plans focus on open space, recreation, pedestrian and bicycle mobility, and on the riverfront portions of the Township. The most recent plan, the Riverfront Plan, was adopted in June, 2016. That plan was done jointly with Conshohocken Borough, and examined the portion of the riverfront and adjacent areas, generally between SEPTA’s Spring Mill regional rail station in the Township, and SEPTA’s Conshohocken regional rail station in the Borough. All of the Township’s plans are available on the Township website (http://www.whitemarshtwp.org/249/Township-Plans).
The Township Board of Supervisors established a ‘Comprehensive Plan Review Committee’ in late 2015 which reviewed the 2003 Plan document, and met a number of times with Township staff. After thoroughly reviewing and discussing the document, the consensus was that the Land Use and Housing Elements are out of date and are not completely consistent with land development trends over the last decade-plus. They are also not necessarily consistent with current Township policies toward land use, particularly residential land use.
