Chester County Pipeline Information Center Initiative

Planning Excellence Award – Public Outreach
Chester County Pipeline Information Center Initiative

Chester County Planning Commission, Chester County Board of Commissioners

With Chester County located between Pennsylvania’s natural gas fields and the refineries and ports of Philadelphia, and facing proposals for more pipelines, the county initiated a major public outreach effort.  It includes three parts.  The Pipeline Information Center website has the latest information on active pipeline projects, including a map searchable by address.  The Pipeline Notification Protocol allows pipeline operators, government agencies, municipalities, and partners to share information of each other’s activities.  The Pipeline Point-of-Contact provides an experienced planner to answer public questions and address concerns.
