Planning for Sustainable Growth in the LehighValley
Nov 05, 2014 02:58PM
The Lehigh Valley Planning Commission (LVPC) has released 1LV, a sustainability report from the three-year, regional partnership endeavor made possible by a $3.4 million grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
After thirty years of growth and change in the Lehigh Valley’s population and economy, with extended periods of development and investment in existing communities and infrastructure, this Consortium has developed a philosophy to protect the Lehigh Valley’s assets for future generations.
1LV assembles 10 distinct reports covering a variety of topics across four themes: economy, environment, transportation and livable communities. The consolidation of key findings from this 14-member regional alliance will help guide future planning and policy decision making across all cities, boroughs and townships within Lehigh and Northampton counties. LVPC will be incorporating 31 goals that have come from the consortium partners’ work, to the Comprehensive Plan as it kicks off an update in 2015.
