The SAC worked diligently throughout 2017 to better integrate themselves into the Borough’s Land Development Plan Review process by updating and finalizing the West Chester Sustainable Certification Program, and using this program criteria as the basis for our reviews. To ensure recommendations were reaching the Planning Commission in a timely manner, the Committee voted to change their meeting date and scheduled SAC liaisons to attend Planning Commission (PC) meetings regularly moving forward. The SAC members attending the meetings will keep the PC updated on new initiatives and answer any questions regarding recommendations submitted by the SAC. Additionally, the SAC will heretofore submit recommendations directly to Borough Council (along with the Planning Commission) so they can be considered during Council's discussions with developers.
