DVRPC Long-Range Plan Public Workshops

A good showing of the Bicycle Community will send a strong message to DVRPC.

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) will hold
public workshops throughout the bi-state region to gather public
input that will help shape the region's long-range plan. Offering
food, networking and an opportunity for individual voices to be
heard, the workshops will examine the issues that we face today as
well as those that will be with us in the coming years.

Workshops will be scheduled for all nine counties in the metropolitan
Philadelphia area, the first to be announced include the following:

Philadelphia Workshop: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21 5:30 P.M.
Loews Philadelphia Hotel, 1200 Market Street, Philadelphia

Gloucester County Workshop: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 29 5:30 P.M.

Workshop announcement, please visit:

DVRPC's Plan will provide guidance for land use decisions and
determine the region's transportation investments throughout the next
25 years. The Plan will also address issues such as combating sprawl,
reinvestment in older cities and suburbs, alleviating traffic
congestion, and will deal with environmental and economic issues
likely to impact the Delaware Valley.
