Delaware County Planning Commission Member

William C. Payne, Chairman

William C. Payne has been an important member of the Delaware County planning community for over four decades. He has served on the Delaware County Planning Commission since 1991 and was nominated Chairman in 2016. In addition, Bill served as Co-Director of the Delaware County Planning Department, as a member of the Media Borough Planning Commission and Zoning Hearing Board, as Director of Planning for RDC, Inc., and as the Planning Director for the City of Chester. In each of these positions he has made important contributions to the planning profession and to the communities he has served.

In 2010, Bill was honored by the American Planning Association with the APA PA’s Planning Leadership Award for a Professional Planner in recognition of all his work for the County and particularly Chester City. During his 25 years as Chester City’s Director of Planning, Bill’s tireless efforts resulted in the development of revitalization projects in the City like Harrah’s Casino and Racetrack, PPL Stadium, the Wharf at Rivertown office development, University Crossing mixed use development, and the Wellington Heights mixed-income housing development.

Bill Payne has worked in the planning “trenches” in virtually every capacity, rising through the ranks to positions where he influences policy at the local, county, and regional levels.
