|Since the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development - Community Revitalization grant was announced by State Senator Bob Regola in October 2005, the primary responsibility of the Smart Growth Partnership has been to build consensus to develop a unified strategy, working countywide across the forty-mile corridor. To accomplish this, Smart Growth built a coalition of government, nonprofit and business leaders. Some of the key partners are listed below.
In January 2006, Smart Growth hosted a US Route 30 Summit. Following the US Route 30 Summit, the SGPWC assisted in the formation of a Community Vision Team to provide overall guidance and input for the plan. The CVT is comprised of over 100 persons and includes many private and public interests.
A smaller Project Working Group (PWG) has also been established to guide the development of the Route 30 Master Plan objectives, work to secure more funding, and provide guidance and feedback for the consultants hired to write the Master Plan.
