Peters Township

A historic community in the southern reaches of metropolitan Pittsburgh, Peters Township needed to create a blueprint for its future.Peters Township: PA Comprehensive Plan

Our multi-discipline team was engaged by Peters Township to develop a new kind of comprehensive plan. The plan needed to set a vision for the future and promote unique activity centers and character areas that would provide people with new options for places to live, work, shop and most importantly, promote social interaction and civic participation. Our team facilitated a Township-wide effort to define and design those centers and areas that would meet the community’s determined vision as well as goals and guiding principles. The goals envisioned in the plan — promote activity centers, emphasize housing variety and choice, expand retail and service locations/options, improve aesthetics, retain and preserve open space, including ponds, woods, trails, working farms and parks, and attract new employment opportunities, among others – will ensure that the township is financially stable, affords greater balance in land uses and enhances the overall quality of life in the community.
