Plan Slate Belt Slate Belt Multi-Municipal Comprehensive Plan is to enable the boroughs of Bangor, East Bangor, Pen Argyl, Roseto, Portland and Wind Gap and the Townships of Plainfield, Washington, Lower Mount Bethel and Upper Mount Bethel, to shape their collective vision for the future.

These communities have their own comprehensive plans, and will maintain their autonomy and control, but they’ve decided that planning together will allow them to take advantage of their geographic similarities and shared priorities to better manage an evolving development landscape.

Through a multi-municipal plan they can determine common goals and objectives for land use, transportation, economic growth, farmland preservation and the conservation of natural and scenic resources. They can find new opportunities to share best practices and resources, saving tax dollars for residents.

The plan will be designed as a roadmap for the next two decades and beyond, but it is also a living document that can be changed and updated as trends and conditions evolve.
