Together We Can
Get to Know Reimagining Our Westmoreland
Reimagining Our Westmoreland, the Westmoreland County comprehensive plan, was adopted by the Board Commissioners on December 20, 2018. The plan lays out an exciting vision for residents and businesses alike. Building off our abundance of unique and diverse places, the plan shows awareness and commitment to working with other local governments: cities, boroughs and townships. Get familiar with the plan and how it was created. Municipal officials—get involved with your Planning District. Citizens—encourage your elected representatives to do so! Together, we will achieve more!
Through constructive dialog and engagement, we can co-create our future. The Westmoreland County comprehensive plan engaged over 5,000 people to inform broad goals and strategies. Going from vision to reality relies on the creativity and commitment expressed through the Planning Districts process and the dedication of local officials, who know and care about their communities best, working together.
