As part of a continuing project to foster inter-municipal cooperation, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) with the support and cooperation of the Delaware County Planning Department (DCPD), Lansdowne, East Lansdowne and Yeadon boroughs (which comprise the Eastern Delaware County Council of Governments), Clifton Heights Borough and Upper Darby Township conducted a Revitalization Assessment of the Baltimore Pike Corridor. The purpose of this assessment is to identify issues and conflicts within the corridor study area and build a case for the need of economic and community redevelopment along the corridor, which will help the study area municipalities obtain funding for such activities. To this end, DVRPC analyzed existing conditions and trends in the study area, conducted a land use analysis and aesthetic assessment, reviewed PennDOT's transportation enhancement project along Baltimore Pike and developed a vision, recommendations and implementation strategies to guide future revitalization efforts. Baltimore Pike Corridor Revitalization Assessment: Building a Case for Community and Economic Redevelopment presents the outcome of these efforts.

Geographic Area Covered: The Baltimore Pike corridor between Oak Avenue in Clifton Heights and Cobbs Creek along the Philadelphia-Delaware County boundary, which includes parts of Clifton Heights, Lansdowne, East Lansdowne and Yeadon boroughs and Upper Darby Township
