A Brief History of Planning Efforts:
In 2011, the Borough of Dublin secured a Transportation and Community Development Initiative (TCDI) grant from the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) to create a Revitalization and Visioning Plan. Matching funds were provided by Discover Dublin, a nonprofit organization, whose membership includes many borough businesses, and by Dublin Borough.
The Borough issued a request for proposals from Professional Planning Consultants to prepare a Revitalization and Visioning Plan for Dublin Borough in May 2012. The purpose of this Revitalization and Visioning Plan (RVP) was to develop planning tools and marketing materials that all stakeholders in the Borough can reference to help guide future business and community development, significantly assisting efforts to entice businesses to remain in Dublin as well as attract new busineses to relocate to Dublin. It should also encourage the residents of the Borough to utilize those businesses in their backyards and reinforce that Dublin Borough is a great place to live, work, play and visit.
A Vision and Goals:
~ Create a sense of place through community design
