Suburban Berks West Region
Joint Comprehensive Plan Update
The Joint Planning Committee has recently completed the Final Draft of the Suburban Berks West Joint Comprehensive Plan. This group consists of representatives of the Township of Spring, the Boroughs of Sinking Spring, West Reading and Wyomissing, and the Wilson and Wyomissing Area School Districts. The current draft is an update to the original comprehensive plan, which was adopted in 2003.
Comprehensive planning is a process that determines community goals and ambitions in terms of community development. It includes an analysis of current land use and potential future growth, and the facilities needed to serve existing and future residents. The Comprehensive Plan that results from this process establishes public policy for development within the Suburban Berks West Region; covering topics such as transportation, utilities, land use, recreation, and housing.
This Plan by itself is not a regulation, but is intended to provide direction for changes to each municipality’s development regulations and policies. It also provides guidance for land use decisions made by the municipal Planning Commissions, the Board of Supervisors or the Borough Councils.
