West Chester University Overlay Project

In a joint planning effort, West Chester Borough and West Goshen Township have been working towards an Overlay District that encompasses the current properties owned by West Chester University and provides a planning area for prospective growth. An Overlay District sets strict boundaries by which West Chester University must adhere, and includes boundaries for growth, transportation planning, parking planning and the creation of a Master Site Plan.

As this is a joint planning effort, the currently drafted Ordinances for West Chester Borough and West Goshen Township may be found below. In addition, a draft Zoning Map, created by Bernardon Associates, both municipalities' consulting land planner, has been provided on this page.

Additional public meetings will be held over the coming months at both the Planning Commission level and the Borough Council / Board of Supervisor levels.
