Bucks Local reports the Bucks County Planning Commission and Northampton Town officials will hold a public meeting next week to introduce citizens to the beginning stages of the Richboro Master Plan, a new planning initiative set to revitalize the Northampton village.
According to Bucks Local, the meeting is meant as a way to not only inform residents of what changes are projected for the area, but to encourage public input for the plan officials and planners hope will bring the village up to speed:
The village, located at the crossroads of Routes 332 and 232, has had a rich history and has played a fundamental role in the development of the township. As the township transformed from a rural farming economy to a modern suburb, Richboro has faced many challenges. Traffic congestion, land use concerns, and environmental constraints have led to the need to reevaluate the village in a comprehensive fashion, said officials.
The town hall meeting will take place at the Northampton Township Building (55 Township Road, Richboro, PA) on Thursday February 12th at 7:00pm.
