River Bend Comprehensive Plan
River Bend is a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Sharpsburg, Millvale, and Etna - also known as the TriBoro EcoDistrict - focusing on eight goals the three communities believe they can achieve. Representatives from each community focused on major issues that could be worked on together. The plan features the following goals:
Seize opportunities to work together
Strengthen the sense of place
Leverage existing assets
Focus on opportunity building blocks as physical places to grow
Update zoning ordinances
Target key land-use changes
Improve bike and pedestrian infrastructure
Address stormwater management
Other projects called for include studying ways to connect with riverfront locations, installing bicycle lanes and racks, improvements to Canal Street and to create design guidelines.
