PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE
What will Montgomery look like in ten years? In twenty years? Today's planning decisions will shape our future. In-depth information about on-going planning projects will be posted at this location regularly. (See below.) All residents are strongly encouraged to become informed and involved in the planning process.
There is no disputing that Montgomery has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau estimates available for 2005, there are approximately 22,741 people that call Montgomery home, up from 20,130 just two years earlier in 2002. Our land area is a little under 33 square miles. From 1990 to 2004 Montgomery's population density increased from 294.8 persons per square mile to 675.4 persons per square mile. In contrast, it took thirty years from 1960 until 1990 for population density to increase from 118 people to 294 people per square mile.
Much effort has gone into master planning to preserve Montgomery's lovely farmlands and woodlands while providing the amenities residents need such as roads, schools, utilities, fire and police services for our town's 8,000 plus households and businesses. As our township has grown, the challenge lies in preventing development sprawl and preserving rural character while addressing traffic problems and allowing sensible growth that helps to balance our tax base.
