At the March 19, 2014 Aston Township Board of Commissioners Meeting, the Board voted in favor of of contracting Simone Collins, PC to develop a Vision Plan For Aston.
Soon after, The Aston Vision Plan Committee, a group of 22 local volunteers was formed. The group began by evaluating previous plans and with the assistance of Simone Collins developed a market assessment of opportunities that exist in the community. Later a series of community outreach events including multiple public meetings were conducted to solicit ideas from residents and business owners in the community. Finally, a community vision for both tangible and intangible assets aimed at enhancing economic development and quality of life in the community emerged.
In September the Aston Township Board of Commissioners adopted a final version of the Aston Township Vision Plan.
