Chester County to Celebrate 30 Years of Open Space Preservation

Chester County Open Space Summit and 30th Anniversary Celebration - Invitation

Public invited to attend May 2 Open Space Summit

Chester County residents are invited to attend a celebration that will mark the 30th anniversary of the open space preservation program in this county and recognize the economic benefits of these efforts.

 The Chester County Open Space Summit will take place from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. Thursday, May 2, 2019 at the Lenfest Center at ChesLen Preserve, 1199 Cannery Road, Coatesville.

Chester County was the first in the region to formally set aside funds for a rigorous open space preservation program and has now determined the economic value of the existing open space. This event will celebrate the economic value of protected open spaces—public parks, preserved farmland, and private conserved lands—and show the proven and substantial economic, environmental, and public health benefits to surrounding communities.

A partnership of county departments, land conservancies, and economic development agencies undertook a study to better understand and quantify these benefits. The results of this study, Return on Environment: The Economic Value of Protected Open Space in Chester County, will be announced at this event.
