Congratulations to Wayne PA - Delaware County's newest member of Classic Towns of Greater Philadelphia.
On October 1, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) added nine more towns to its Classic Towns of Greater Philadelphia Marketing initiative. Wayne is now one of twenty towns in the initiative that "is designed to promote the Classic Towns as great places to live, work, and play." The Classic Towns initiative tries to highlight each town individually while promoting the entire region. Toward that end, they are working to "identify niche markets, invest in and build on quality of place, create new partnerships, and thinking regionally while acting locally" as they support the region's older suburbs.
Wayne joins Media and Lansdowne as the third Classic Town in Delaware County. With settlement beginning in the late 1600s, Wayne PA was one of the earliest communities in the area. Growth increased in the mid 1800s as developers and investors began non-agricultural development along the then new railroad between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. Over time, the area developed from farmland, to country getaway, and finally to one of the best suburbs in the greater Philadelphia area. Today, Wayne is recognized as a prime residential community now located in Radnor Township with great schools, excellent housing, low crime, a central business district, and residents dedicated to its future.
As Wayne Council President, Thomas Masterson Jr, mentioned in their press release: "The Classic Towns initiative helps draw attention to what a great place Wayne is to live and raise a family". With all its amenities, history, and great location along the Main Line, it should remain a prime location for years in the future.
