Planning professionals offer free ideas for Pottstown waterfront

    In this case, indecision was probably the best method possible for Pottstown. After disagreement about what a revitalized waterfront should look like, some planning professionals are stepping in to offer free advice.

    The Professional Development Institute of the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers will offer 12 to 15 professionals who are after continuing education credits to draw up plans for the Schuylkill waterfront, as the Mercury reports.

    Armed with zoning maps, flood plain maps, photographs and other information, the group will have six weeks to come up with individual plans. Those ideas will be considered by borough planning commission.
