West Whiteland Township's plans and ordinances direct mixed-use residential and commercial development, along with corresponding transportation improvements, to the commercial corridors around Exton Crossroads, with the long-term goal of making it a more vibrant and walkable area, while keeping our existing neighborhoods the way they are.

Over 20% of the land in the Township is permanently protected open space. Any time land is subdivided or developed, whether for residential or corporate purposes, the developer is required to set aside a predetermined amount of land for open space and recreation. Township staff works with each developer individually and must approve the open space arrangements or assess an open space fee to secure adequate amounts of recreational areas for our residents.
