Congratulations to our Building and Planning Department for their award from the PA Chapter of the American Planning Association! Award for a Project, Program or Practice Zoning Code – Public Participation Process: Lower Merion Township – Building and Planning Department; Montgomery County Planning Commission & DPZ CoDesign . Since its inception in 1927, the zoning code has been continuously updated until the 2020 comprehensive rewrite, predicated upon the 2016 comprehensive plan. The result was a hybrid code designed to preserve the 19th and early 20th-century railroad suburb with form-based standards to guide growth and redevelopment of the community. Critical to this process was extensive public engagement guided by Township Staff. The process began with translating hundreds of publicly generated recommendations from the comprehensive plan. The staff then developed a dedicated webpage, utilized social media, and implemented an interactive zoning map to inform residents. Staff coordinated the Civic Engagement Committee, which conducted monthly stakeholder interviews, small group meetings, and large group meetings with civic organizations, institutions and business owners. Staff also facilitated 42 public meetings and five open houses. The engagement process was concurrent with code drafting and resulted in a seamless feedback loop of project improvement. A one-day charrette was held with the Montgomery County Planning Commission, developers, engineers, architects, and attorneys to test the draft code, resulting in final calibrations prior to advertisement for adoption. The two-year civic engagement process created a culture of trust, resulting in the unanimous adoption of the plan by all fourteen Township Commissioners.
I was recently interviewed by Amy Evans from the PA Chapter of the American Planning Association for their monthly newsletter. Here's my favorite line from her article: "Professional planners, especially ones that run social media accounts, may be skeptical that small incentives – even really fun ones – can drive regular engagement, but Zurn encourages us not to overlook the 'collector' dynamic that drives many people, and gamers in particular, to consistently interact with content."

Saturday in the Park. We popped over to Lion's Pride Park to check out how people are using it! We were delighted to see so many families amd friends having a ball. They were climbing, jumping, picnicking, running, and playing music. They’d come from near and far walking, biking, scootering, and driving. They had balls and frisbees to throw and chess pieces for matches. We heard three languages being spoken. We love our work. PA Chapter of the American Planning Association #greatplacesPA
