Harrison • Brackenridge • Tarentum | Joint Comprehensive Plan
A comprehensive plan is a road map for determining where a community wants to go, and how to get there. Our comprehensive plan will be an implementable plan that is driven by community input, and focuses on realistic, feasible solutions to issues that the community identifies.
The plan will help guide the growth and development of our joint communities, and the priorities identified in the plan will influence where new businesses, homes and amenities are built in our area.
Over the course of the next year, municipal staff, industry experts, and concerned citizens will work diligently to draft a joint plan on behalf of the people of our community —a task that will command an exceptional commitment from all involved. The result will be the Borough of Tarentum’s first major comprehensive plan update since 2009.
