Jack Smyth, Jr. alongside Leo Bagley (formerly Montgomery County Planning Commission), Brian O’Leary (MCPC), Eric Goldstein (King of Prussia BID), and William Walker (Horsham Township Manager) presented at the Pennsylvania American Planning Association (APA) annual conference. Their discussion focused on efforts to strengthen Montgomery County’s economy by transforming the Pennsylvania Turnpike into a resource that effectively provides access to destination centers within the county. Through the PA Turnpike Corridor Reinvestment Study, Boles, Smyth worked with Stakeholders to develop concepts to modernize existing interchanges and potentially add new interchanges. Jack and fellow speakers discussed adoption of new land use policies along the corridor, market trends, issues facing townships that are dependent on aging business parks, the business perspective, and an overview of transportation planning issues.
