“Kennett Square was very fortunate to have Chuck Marohn, one of the nation’s greatest community planning advocates, lecture at the KSQ Speaker Series on the inherent strengths and weaknesses that define a place, and how ordinary people can enact change for the betterment of that place,” says event sponsor Mike Pia Jr.
“Chuck demonstrated how the automobile-centric mentality of municipalities has caused the downfall of proper town planning,” Pia says, “and he explained what ordinary citizens can do to reignite traditional planning values.”
One way Kennett residents can take action and make their voices heard as our community grows is by filling in this survey on what you'd like to see in the development going in at the former NVF site.
The site has been purchased by a developer who will be requesting a change of use for the property. The Borough of Kennett Square and its leaders want to hear your thoughts on what would contribute to making Kennett an even better place.
Please take a moment to fill out this survey and feel free to share it as well. It's also available in Spanish here. You can read a bit more about the history of this site here.
