Hershey Revitalization Planning
The Downtown Hershey Plan for Continued Revitalization creates a new paradigm in planning and development with Derry Township. The plan emphasizes unbridled enthusiasm for the town that Milton S. Hershey built, an unprecedented spirit of collaboration, and an unwavering commitment to protecting and enhancing his dream.
Through a community meeting and continuing, month-long on-line presence, more than 700 members of the Hershey community reviewed nearly 80 images representing the essential elements of a successful downtown.
Utilizing the results of the information gathering phases, including an area wide photo inventory and field analysis, the following conceptual enhancement options were developed. Each design graphic personifies the preferences expressed in community specific locations.
The intent of these graphics is not to portray the exact details and final design of the improvement, but rather reveal the inherent opportunities to further enhance the sense of place in downtown Hershey and interpret the community’s voice in real world settings.
