Chester County has launched a new, free interactive online resource called Community Profiles, which offers information ranging from population projections to transportation routes.
Available through the county's website, www.chesco.org and the County's Landscapes2 internet site, www.landscapes2.org, Community Profiles provides current data on subjects such as housing, open space, development, government, and community facilities.
Earlier this week, Ronald T. Bailey, executive director of the Chester County Planning Commission, demonstrated the system, which was researched, designed and developed by the Planning Commission staff, for the commissioners, who all praised the effort.
Commissioners Chairman Terence Farrell said it marked another "first" by Chester County. “No other county in the region offers such a comprehensive, interactive program like this,” he said, predicting it will become a model.
