The Boroughs of Homestead, Munhall and West Homestead are planning for a bright future.
The three communities are creating an Implementable Comprehensive Plan, a playbook for prosperity for the next 10 years. This represents an opportunity to explore the core values of the people who call these places home and build local priorities into future decision-making.

A different kind of plan
A community's Comprehensive Plan is the official policy document that establishes a vision, goals and objectives for local government in the long range.
The Implementable Comprehensive Plan approach flips the script on the traditional way communities approach long-range planning, which all too often results in a document collecting dust on a shelf. Our project focuses on generating the capacity and momentum to take action on consensus community priorities. The process will provide the creative ideas and strategies to fuel action plans that can be readily undertaken. It builds teams of leaders and resource groups that represent ways and means to get things done. It makes implementation a well-supported, clear and feasible next step.
The Discussion Board is a place to discuss the future of our community with friends and neighbors. Any inappropriate or advertising language or information that violates personal privacy will be removed.
