Northern Chester County is facing major challenges. The scenic rural character of Chester County, its proximity to major employment centers, and renowned high quality of life is attracting many new residents with needs and expectations of public services, including recreation. The partner municipalities are small and have limited human and financial resources.

Determining how and where to provide recreation, greenways, and trails through partnerships, pooled resources, and shared responsibilities will maximize opportunities and benefits to the participating organizations for the good of the people who live, work, and play here.
