Community Engagement

Why Community Engagement 


Calling all residents, neighbors, business owners, and lovers of Lansdowne!! It is important that Lansdowne’s comprehensive planning process reflects the needs of Lansdowne’s many communities, especially those who have historically been left out of core decision making in the Borough. In order to ensure equity guides this process, Lansdowne Borough, with the help of Connect the Dots Insights, will be running a robust public engagement effort launching this winter. We will be present at public meetings, engagement pop-ups, and stakeholder interviews, and focus groups through the winter and spring, working tirelessly to reach as many voices as possible. We can’t wait to meet you!
