Seeking shared solutions to transportation challenges at and around West Chester Pike, one of the region’s most important – and congested – corridors.
The West Chester Pike Coalition is a group of stakeholders that has emerged from recent planning efforts along West Chester Pike. The Coalition is managed through a collaborative effort of the Planning staff of both Chester and Delaware counties, in conjunction with the elected leadership of the Coalition, Chair Casey LaLonde (Township Manager, West Goshen Township) and Stephen Nease (Township Manager, Newtown Township). The Coalition currently includes representatives from 10 corridor municipalities, SEPTA, PennDOT, the transportation management associations of Chester (TMACC) and Delaware (DCTMA) counties, and a number of other local stakeholder organizations, such as private businesses, economic development agencies, and transportation advocacy groups.
While the coalition was formed to continue to advocate for transit enhancements, its mission is deliberately broad so as to recognize the connections between transportation, land use, and quality of life issues, and to encourage the participation of a wide range of stakeholders united in their efforts to improve mobility for all along West Chester Pike.
The coalition first met in July 2016 and continues to meet on a regular basis. For more information, go to http://www.chescoplanning.org/transportation/WestChesterPike.cfm.
