Planning & Development


Attention developers, retailers, businesses and all other interested parties, did you know that Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) recognized Hopewell Township as one of the top four models and sites to transform the area in and around the Pittsburgh International Airport?

Based on its analysis of southwestern Pennsylvania, CMU predicted four sites would advance the implementation of an ‘Aerotropolis’ development concept for the Pittsburgh International Airport, and Hopewell Township – the Gateway to Beaver County – will play a large role. An Aerotropolis, as defined by author John D. Kasarda, is ‘a new urban form placing airports in the center with cities growing around them, connecting workers, suppliers, executives, and goods to the global marketplace.’
