The King of Prussia Rail Community Working Group was formed by SEPTA to provide residents of Upper Merion Township a forum for learning about, asking questions, and offering feedback on the KOP Rail project in a small group setting. The CWG consists of representatives from a variety of neighborhoods across Upper Merion Township. Goals for the committee include:
• Meeting on a regular basis to update and inform members about the project;
• Developing constructive dialogue among local officials, SEPTA representatives, the project team, and a variety
of community members with different perspectives;
• And discussing a variety of technical topics relating to the project.
Members of the committee were invited based on public meeting attendance, emails received at the project email address and comment cards received. The CWG was designed to include a mix of residents interested in learning about project details and eager to provide feedback and participate in small group discussions.
The interests and concerns of the Valley Forge Homes and Brandywine Village communities are well represented on the committee because of the impact KOP Rail could have on their neighborhoods. Members of the Upper Merion Township Planning Commission, Economic and Community Development Committee, and Transportation Authority were also invited to participate.
