Return on Environment

Oct 13, 2020 | Announcements

The Chester County Commissioners unveiled the results of Return on Environment, a new study quantifying the economic value of protected open space in Chester County.  The report found that 86 percent of homes in Chester County are located within a half-mile of protected open space, and that these homes derive an average of $11,000 in additional value because of their proximity to open space.  Without the support of municipal leaders, this widespread success in open space preservation would not be possible.  Click on the below link that highlights the findings of this study.
