Upper Chichester Township held the first of two public meetings on June 17, 2021. This pubic open house event was held concurrently with the Upper Chichester Heart and Soul Part 1 Summit because, while they are two separate projects, they have connected goals: listening to the voices of the residents to build a happier, vibrant community.

Approximately 120 to 150 participants attended the open house, asking questions and providing comments to consultants and community volunteers, participating in SWOT and Dotmocracy exercises, and filling out community surveys.
