In 2014, Lansdowne Borough Council adopted “The Walkshed Plan” as developed by Urban Engineers and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission. The plan makes recommendations for the improvement of walking conditions in the downtown area of Lansdowne’s Central Business District. Click HERE to view the "WalkShed Plan"
The recommendations in the plan included the development of the Lansdowne Avenue Crosswalk to the theater from the Lansdowne Avenue Lot. In 2021, Lansdowne Borough completed the Lansdowne Avenue Crosswalk.
The Walkshed Plan also included recommendations for a market plaza area and significant improvements to the parking lots between: Owen Avenue and Lansdowne Avenue and the Highland Avenue Lot. In 2017, community volunteers led by Councilmember Susan Williams and Councilmember Magda Byrne organized “The Landing” and “The Landing Board” was created by Council in 2018 to pilot the usability of a market plaza area in the Lansdowne Avenue lot. The pilot program was a success. During this time, members of the American Legion and Council discussed the idea of refurbishing “Veteran’s Park.”
In May 2021, Lansdowne Borough Council voted to engage into a contract with NV5 to develop a design using the model of The Walkshed Plan, recommendations from the American Legion, and the Landing Board to develop a plan for “Veteran’s Park,” “The Landing,” and the parking lots.
