An important aspect of the Comprehensive Plan addressed the creation of Neighborhood/District Plans. These plans need to be prepared and updated periodically to address, in detail, issues relevant to each specific neighborhood. Regular updates of neighborhood plans should occur both to ensure their relevance and to bring them into compliance with the most recently adopted Comprehensive Plan.
In general, these Plans will identify distressed properties and neighborhoods by performing a needs assessment and using a rating scale. Conditions such as a neighborhood’s overall rating, curb appeal, and property score related to surrounding amenities will be considered and included in the needs assessments. The overall Plans will detail specific infrastructure improvements to Township neighborhoods and increased use of branding to create identity.
