The Chester County Commissioners announce the launch of a website dedicated to pipeline communication which gives county residents, municipalities and pipeline operators up-to-date information on pipeline locations and proposed projects in Chester County.
The website, called the Pipeline Information Center (PIC) provides mapping and other resources to assist in a better understanding of pipelines and their regulation. Here you will be able to view pipeline corridors on municipal maps and learn how to contact pipeline companies with non-emergency questions.

Land Use Analysis
This report, including an interactive map, shows land use changes in Chester County between 2000 and 2010 in relation to the Livable Landscapes Map. The map designates growth areas, which can best accommodate future growth and rural resource areas, are least appropriate for intense growth.
The land use report illustrates that around 60 percent of the new development has been located in designated growth areas. Additional information is included about the amount and location of residential and commercial/industrial development. The interactive map allows users to zoom in to examine development in local areas of the county. View the report.
Housing and Transportation Options for Southern Chester County
Chester County Planning Commission has completed a study of housing, transportation, and employment options and connections available to disadvantaged individuals and families in the Baltimore Pike corridor. The study focused on the Latino community and the low-income/fixed-income elderly, and identified a number of deficits in both housing and transportation options for these two groups. A series of implementation strategies forms the framework to address these deficits for the benefit of the low-income community and the study area as a whole.
