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.
Shaping the way we live, work and play, DVRPC builds consensus on improving transportation, promoting smart growth, protecting the environment, and enhancing the economy. We serve the counties of: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania; and Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Mercer in New Jersey. DVRPC fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Commission’s public meetings are held in ADA-compliant facilities and are in transit-accessible locations. Auxiliary services, such as translations, can be provided to individuals who submit a request at least seven days prior to the meeting.
