BACKGROUND: In the spring of 2015 Historic Kennett Square, under the advisement of its Economic Development Committee, applied for and was awarded a Vision Partnership Program grant from the Chester County Planning Commission. This grant from the County, along with funding from project partners Kennett Township, the Borough of Kennett Square, Longwood Gardens and GenesisHealth Care allowed for an RFP process to begin with the goal of hiring a consulting team to conduct a Kennett Region Economic Development Study for seven focus areas in Kennett Township and the Borough of Kennett Square. In the fall of 2015 Todd Poole from 4ward Planning and Mark Keener from the RBA were hired to create the plan. Read more about this process and the 7 focus areas in press release from July 2015.
