West Whiteland Township's plans and ordinances direct mixed-use residential and commercial development, along with corresponding transportation improvements, to the commercial corridors around Exton Crossroads, with the long-term goal of making it a more vibrant and walkable area, while keeping our existing neighborhoods the way they are.
Historic resources are an important part of the Township's history and contribute greatly to the community's identity and overall unique character. West Whiteland has a rich history and has served as the crossroads at the heart of Chester County since the Revolutionary War. The Township serves as a regional model in the municipal support of historic preservation and was one of the first municipalities in the county to adopt an ordinance to establish a historical commission.

Transportation Improvement Projects
Since the enactment of the transportation impact fee in 2015, the Township has collected nearly $750,000 to be used for projects to mitigate the impact of new development.

Over 20% of the land in the Township is permanently protected open space. Any time land is subdivided or developed, whether for residential or corporate purposes, the developer is required to set aside a predetermined amount of land for open space and recreation. Township staff works with each developer individually and must approve the open space arrangements or assess an open space fee to secure adequate amounts of recreational areas for our residents.
