[ARCHIVED] POSTPONED: Land Planning Study for Norristown State Hospital

Important Notice

The Pennsylvania Department of General Services (DGS) has retained Michael Baker International (Michael Baker) to conduct an objective land planning study of the Norristown State Hospital campus located in Norristown and West Norriton Township. The Norristown State Hospital Campus is currently under review for environmental concerns, current land use, potential future land use, infrastructure, zoning, and economic impact. The campus does not include the portion of the property located in East Norriton Township currently known as the Norristown Farm Property.


Stakeholder input is important to the planning process. Identifying opportunities and concerns of stakeholders who currently use the Norristown State Hospital campus and stakeholders that have interest in its future use will ensure the land planlning study considers multiple viewpoints and represents the highest and best use for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and its citizens.


Both meetings will be held at Norristown State Hospital, 1001 Sterigere Street, Norristown, PA 19401. The meetings will be held in the Community Room of Building 33. Please refer to the attached map. Building 33 is highlighted in orange.

  3. If a portion of the Norristown State Hospital campus was made available for redevelopment, how would you be impacted?
  4. Five or ten years from now, what do you envision for the Norristown State Hospital campus?


Please attend either one of these meetings as your schedule permits. If you are not able to attend one of the two scheduled meetings, a public meeting will be held in early Fall to discuss preliminary study findings. Once a date is scheduled for this meeting it will be publicly advertised.
