In this episode of Bucks County Conversations, we chat with the department that handles everything from land development to household hazardous waste to rail trail connections, as well as interactive, informational maps on our website. Evan Stone, the director of the Planning Commission, tells us, “Data is our life.” The commission is currently planning for the future of the county with their Bucks2040 comprehensive plan.
Later, we head out to West Rockhill Township where their township buildings are being powered by a small field of solar panels, a first in Pennsylvania. Jim Miller, an involved community member and former supervisor, helped lead the charge on implementing the solar panels. Jim says the township hit their first yearly electric goal, with two months to spare.
