County Solicits Business Owners' Input for Comprehensive Plan Update

Bucks2040_Logo

The Bucks County Commissioners and the Bucks County Planning Commission want more information about local businesses to help shape an upcoming revision of the county’s comprehensive plan.

To help gather data about our vast range of businesses and how they operate, the county this week released a business survey for proprietors to complete as part of the Bucks 2040 initiative to update the comprehensive plan. 

Taking a few minutes to complete the survey will help ensure that the needs of our business community – so vital to the county’s future – are incorporated in future discussions of the plan.

Earlier this month, different surveys were sent to a representative sample of Bucks County households, seeking residents’ input about the shape of municipal development in Bucks County. The county also will seek feedback from local governments.

The Bucks 2040 comprehensive plan update is intended to provide fresh guidance to the county’s boroughs and townships on the best ways to use and develop land, improve infrastructure and boost economic opportunities. It is set for completion in September 2022.

Last updated in 2011, the new plan also will focus on ways to gear development toward fighting climate change, while preserving Bucks County’s historic, natural and agricultural legacy.

Residents who do not receive a survey are still invited to make their voices heard by emailing comments, concerns and questions to the Planning Commission at [email protected]

New for this update is the Bucks2040 Photo Contest, in which amateur photographers are asked to send along their best images from around Bucks County. Winners will be selected from a number of categories, and will have their photos featured in the pages of Bucks 2040. 

Photo submissions will be accepted until Nov. 1.

For more information about the photo contest and for a more detailed summary of the Bucks 2040 plan and its goals, visit Bucks2040.com.
