Churchill Borough Community Vision for the Future in Commercial Development

The Borough is conducting a project to create a community vision for commercial development. This initiative is a “next step” of Churchill’s 2018 Comprehensive Implementable Plan. The Churchill Borough C-1 Planning and Visioning Committee wants to know YOUR vision for our Borough’s future.

The post card, Churchill wants your opinion, was sent to each property in the Borough the second week of April. Here is a link to the Churchill visioning postcard.

The post card provides instructions for completing and submitting the community questionnaire. It offers the opportunity for citizens to be active participants in creating a vision for Churchill’s future. The questionnaire is available from April 15, to June 01, online or on paper (but not both, please).

Access to the survey:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Churchill_Visioning.

For a paper copy, contact the Borough Office at 412-241-7113 or office@churchillborough.com  Please share your opinions!

The post card also provides information about online panel discussions held on three consecutive Wednesdays (4/29, 5/6, 5/13). Planning consultants, Pashek+MTR assembled experts in various commercial development planning and visioning topics, providing the community with a lot of food for thought. The panel discussions were recorded and are available using these links:
