Finding Common Ground with Uncommon Resolve

What does Chester County 2020 do?
When folks ask, "What does Chester County 2020 do?" We could answer a couple of different ways. We could go pedantic, and say, "Well, you understand Pennsylvania is a COMMONWEALTH, governed by a MUNICIPALITIES CODE..." and watch people nod out. Or we could go fundamental, and give the answer we come up with when we regularly ask ourselves the same question: "CHESTER COUNTY 2020 PROVIDES RELIABLE INFORMATION, AND FACILITATES INFORMED, CIVIL DISCOURSE."

We provide accredited Training Courses; we facilitate community workshops; we present the Citizen Planner Breakfasts, like the recent one on Aug. 21. Land use issues are the common thread, but you know, there's little in life that doesn't have a land use dimension. Unless you live on a yacht, or in a zeppelin. We find there's a limitless appetite for informed, civil discourse. Our ability to provide is limited only by the amount of public support we can gain.

So come to a Breakfast, take a Course, attend a workshop and visit to make a contribution and learn more about us.

Let's finish the post by paraphrasing the Great Etta James: "We bring solid information to your neighborhood. Civil Discourse is our business, and business is good..." Cheers!

Chester County 2020 (CC2020) is a non-profit change agent working to connect and educate the county’s resident and business and political leaders. CC2020 engages stakeholders in cooperative efforts to address common issues; dispel misguided rumors that develop in any community discussion; and produce measurable action on issues that affect the county’s quality of life.

Chester County 2020 is a trusted non-partisan, community-sensitive organization. We convene, educate and serve diverse constituencies. A gratifying outcome is enhanced communication and cooperation among organizations and individuals of wide-ranging attitudes and expertise. Direct involvement with natural resource protection and farmland preservation continues as CC2020 responds to issues involving the dynamics of an increasing population.

Since the year 2000, more than 50,000 new residents have moved to Chester County.  Such an increase in population translates into challenges for livable communities and resource protection. If there is to be less sprawl in the cornfields and less degradation to critical natural resources, especially the watersheds, the urban centers must become more livable. Density proposals in areas where infrastructure exists need to become less contentious. Allied concerns involve the serious shortage of affordable homes; improved, accessible public transportation; safer and less congested roadways, and fostering a sense of community.

Our programs for conservation, education, and community invite your participation and need your support.
Chester County 2020 helps create livable communities by bringing people together to find common ground and then working to transform dialogue into action.
