Meetings set on region’s long-range plan

Metropolitan areas across the country need to maintain a regional long-range plan that has a 20-year or more planning horizon to remain eligible for billions of dollars in federal transportation funding.
The long-range plan identifies current trends, external and internal forces, and upcoming needs, as well as a vision for where the region needs to grow and go.
The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) region currently receives about $2 billion of federal transportation funding each year, all dependent on the plan. Those dollars fund projects like sidewalks, bridge replacements, roadway reconstruction, bike lanes, and new transit vehicles, among other types of improvements.
Join the next online workshop to help identify values, concerns, and hopes for the region. The future of our transportation network and the vitality of our region depend on hearing from as many different people as possible.
Meetings are schedules at 9 a.m. Thursday, June 18, with Bucks County Commissioner Robert J. Harvie Jr.; 6 p.m. Sunday, June 28; and 2 p.m. Tuesday, June 30, with Montgomery County Commissioner Dr. Valerie Arkoosh.
