West Whiteland Township's Development Education Hub

There has been lots of buzz around the development and new construction projects in the Township. 

Why so many apartments? What is going to happen to the mall? Will we still have green space? Do residents get any say in what happens here?

In fact, the Township has been very busy planning for the development AND finding effective ways to let the community know what is happening and voice an opinion. Please take advantage of the information featured here to learn how these development decisions are made, and to provide feedback on what YOU would like to see in the Township!
