Route 30 Master Plan


The Smart Growth Partnership of Westmoreland County is a community-based private non-profit located at the Penn State Extension. We believe that the land we use today is being borrowed from our children and our children's children. Therefore we are guided by the principle that communities need to make good long-term decisions about where, when and how they should grow. We seek to encourage growth that improves the quality of life for our current residents and businesses, but will also insure vibrant, high quality growth for future generations in Westmoreland County.
