Cadmus is supporting the West Chester Area Council of Governments (WCACOG) with a study to inform the development of the West Chester Area Regional Community Energy Transition Plan. Throughout the research and planning process, Cadmus is engaging with an Advisory Group comprised of representatives from each WCACOG municipality that is participating in the study as well as the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC). The purpose of the Advisory Group is to provide critical input, feedback, and local knowledge to Cadmus throughout the Renewable Energy Planning process.
In addition to the ongoing input from the Advisory Group, Cadmus recently conducted a series of engagement efforts to ensure that forthcoming research and analysis is grounded in local goals and perspectives. Click here to read more about progress to-date.
Cadmus will deliver a final report in November 2019.
The spotted lanternfly, an invasive insect that first arrived on the scene in 2014 in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The planthopper, native to Asia, has the potential to take a big bite out of Pennsylvania's economy by damaging crops, landscapes and natural ecosystems, including the grape, tree-fruit, hardwood and nursery industries.
So far, the insect has been contained to a quarantine zone consisting of 13 counties — Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia and Schuylkill — and those on the front lines of combating the pest want to keep it that way.
