The Bucks County Planning Commission (BCPC) will host a series of open house meetings this fall to engage the public on the “Bucks2040” comprehensive plan update. 

Interested citizens will be able to view displays and express their comments to project staff. Opportunities will be provided to let participants give their vision for the future of Bucks County.

The open house meeting will feature displays on the Bucks2040 comprehensive plan and important trends since the last plan update in 2011.

BCPC staff will host the open house meeting at three separate locations to enable residents from all parts of the county to participate. The open house meetings will be held from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the following dates and locations:

The update to the 2011 comprehensive plan will form a collective vision for the county and set a direction for future policies and programs. Bucks 2040 will focus on the quality-of-life issues that are most important to Bucks County residents and will help our communities achieve better land use outcomes.

Residents unable to make any of the public meeting are encouraged to visit the open house virtual meeting room,, where they will be able to view the meeting displays, provide comments and ask questions.
