Open Space Committee

The Chadds Ford Open Space Committee (OSC)  identifies existing open space, works on the development and amendments of the Townships open space plan, and identify properties suitable for open space, conservation and wetland use, and passive recreation use, including hiking/bike trails, and then advise the Township Supervisors as to ways and means to implement open space initiatives and the public dedication of land.

  • Seven members, serving two-year terms.
