    The Pike County Commissioners want feedback about the County Implementable Comprehensive Plan Community Collaboration meetings on Aug. 16 and 17.

    Learn about the planning process, review results from the Comprehensive Plan Community Survey and give your feedback on the future priorities for the county related to transportation, housing, land use, preservation, infrastructure, economic development and much more.

    Three meetings will be held at different locations to reach as many people as possible. The meeting schedule is:

    Wednesday, Aug. 16, from 6 to 8 p.m., at East Stroudsburg High School North, 279 Timberwolf Drive, Bushkill.

    Thursday, Aug. 17, from 12 to 2 p.m., at Wallenpaupack Area High School, 2552 US-6, Hawley.

    Thursday, Aug. 17, from 4 to 6 p.m., at Delaware Valley High School, 256 US-6, Milford.

    All meetings are “open house” style and will be staffed by the County’s Comprehensive Plan Consultant Michael Baker International and county staff.

    The county updates its comprehensive plan to provide a framework for future growth, development, and preservation activities. The Comprehensive Plan Update will utilize the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development Implementable Plan model to create a plan that is actionable and measurable. The planning process will continue with an expected adoption in Spring 2024.

    Pike County’s Community Planning & Mapping Office is responsible for the administration of the project. Pike County has contracted with the firm Michael Baker International to manage the planning process and draft the Implementable Comprehensive Plan Update. Michael Baker has also brought in The Institute, an economic research and applied research consulting group based in Wilkes Barre, Pa., to support the project.
