From the Derry Township website:
Speaker to Kick-Off the Review of the Comprehensive Plan
Pulitzer Prize winning author of Save Our Land, Save Our Towns and Smart Growth leader, Tom Hylton, will kick-off the Township’s Comprehensive Plan survey, Your Vision for Derry Township, on Monday, September 12, at 7 p.m., at the Hershey Public Library. (The survey will be available online at www.derrytownship.org in late August.)
Hylton won the Pulitzer Prize for a series of articles he wrote about Smarth Growth issues in Eastern Pennsylvania. He also authored and produced a documentary that showed on WITF. He will discuss Smart Growth, Walk to School Programs, and how to make a community the best that it can be. (Because it has worked so well in Pottstown)
The September 12th event is free and open to the public. However, seating is limited. To reserve a seat, email SandyBallard@derrytownship.org and she will mark a seat(s) with your name on it until 6:45 PM and notify you via email if the event needs to be moved to a larger location.
Visit saveourlandsaveourtowns.org for more information on Tom Hylton. Funding for the presentation is being provided through a Dauphin County grant. (Money for glossy mailers in November)
All I can say to the nice folks in Derry Township is, before you go getting all in a lather, come to Pottstown and see Mr. Hylton’s handiwork first-hand.
