Community Development / Economic Development / Plan the Pike
The Delhi Township “Plan the Pike” Strategic Redevelopment Plan was designed to help the townships elected and appointed officials, administration, residents, developers and business operators develop a shared understanding of Delhi Pikes future needs regarding land use and the best strategies for ensuring a successful and strong economic future for the township. Like many developed communities, Delhi Township enjoys a number of assets, but the community will benefit from a long-term strategy to guide its efforts to achieve desire land uses and development characteristics both today and into the future. The “Plan the Pike” Strategic Redevelopment Plan has received local and regional support and accolades and in 2016 it was awarded the Frank F. Ferris Award for Planning Excellence. This competitive award is awarded to local planning commissions or planning committees whose efforts have contributed to the elevation of planning principals, greater awareness of the value of planning, and the improved quality of life.
