VISTA 2025 is a Chester County public-private partnership effort that is focused on creating and implementing an economic development strategy for the county. Its fundamental premise is that progress and preservation are complementary elements of a strategy that will support economic health while maintaining the “sense of place” that makes Chester County so attractive to residents and businesses.
This process has been organized around five key sequential elements: Vision, Ideas, Solutions, Teams and Actions with a goal of guiding economic growth over the next ten years towards a successful and sustainable county economy. With a focus on specific near-term actions, VISTA 2025 seeks to galvanize a wide range of county stakeholders to join together to achieve the objectives and recommendations that emerged as part of the strategy.
This process is being guided by an Executive Alliance of key county business leaders, educators, and non-profit executives which is led by public sector co-chairman and Chester County Commissioner Michelle Kichline and private sector co-chairman, Tom Fillippo. The development of the strategy was being managed by the Chester County Economic Development Council and TIP strategies.
The results of VISTA 2025 were unveiled in October 2014 at Penn State Great Valley, and implementation of the 180+ strategies is ongoing, led by the Executive Alliance with support from the Chester County Economic Development Council and many others.
