Eastburg 2025 – A Plan for the Borough’s future

Comprehensive plans are a community’s opportunity to evaluate various facets of their municipality—jobs, housing, transportation, environment, etc.—and identify adjustments needed to ensure the community remains a desirable place to live and work over the decades to come. (Click here) for a factsheet about the planning effort.

A Vision and Milestones to Make it Happen

The Task Force and planning team have prepared a vision, a description of what East Stroudsburg could be like in 2025, and an initial list of projects, actions and initiatives that will enable the vision, or something similar, to occur.

Take a look at the vision and let one of the Task Force members (below) know if you like it as is or have suggestions.

The list is presented in an at-a-glance format. We think it may be the basis for a great poster to keep everyone on track and motivated. It should view well onscreen, but if you wish to print it, you will need a larger printer.

The Task Force and planning team are preparing detailed action plans for each of the 7 priorities and meeting with community partners to garner their support for the plan and its implementation.

What’s Next?

A community open house to present the draft action plans will be scheduled in late March 2017 at the Dansbury Depot. Please keep an eye out in the upcoming weeks for specific dates and times! This is a drop-in event. Come for a few minutes. Stay as long you like.

Short presentations will be scheduled on an hourly basis. Between the presentations, you’ll be able to visit various poster stations and talk with Task Force members and the planning team about the vision and the needed steps to make it happen. We’ll have refreshments and an activity for kids and teens, too!
