IMAGINE Berks is more than a planning process...
It's an opportunity for the community to direct actions that can help us realize our vision of Berks County as a place where all residents and businesses can thrive, entrepreneurship and innovation flourish, and the region’s diversity is celebrated and supported, enabling all Berks County residents to prosper.
Sure, the result of this work is an Economic Development Action Plan, but that was just the first milestone.
From there we invested time and resources into the very things that our community identifies as areas of opportunity and challenges we must address.
This website will be an evolving resource to share information about the plan and its goals. We hope that you stay involved as we begin to implement our plans and strategies — let’s imagine and build a better Berks County.
