UPCOMING EVENTS

LVTS Technical and Coordinating Committees Cancelled;

Freight Advisory Committee Rescheduled

After consulting with Pennsylvania Department of Transportation we are cancelling the Lehigh Valley Transportation Study (LVTS) Technical and Coordinating Committees scheduled for Wednesday, February 7th at the LVPC offices due to the high potential for inclement weather.  The Freight Advisory Committee Meeting tomorrow has also been postponed.

 

• The next LVTS Technical Committee meeting will be on Wednesday, March 7th at 9 AM at the

  LVPC Offices.

• The next Coordinating Committee Meeting will be held on April 4th at 10 AM at the LVPC

  Offices.

• The Freight Advisory Committee has been rescheduled for March 7th at 10:30 AM.  Location

   will be confirmed shortly.

 

In the meantime, we hope that you attend the PENNDOT Connects Municipal Outreach Session on February 27th, 1-3PM at the LVPC offices.  PENNDOT Connects is a new initiative designed to enhance transportation planning and coordination between municipal governments, PENNDOT, LVPC/LVTS and stakeholders.  This more strategic approach to engagement ensures that local priorities and issues are effectively considered as transportation needs and investment are planned and developed.  To learn more about PENNDOT Connects and to register for this free session click on the following link:

LVTS Public Participation Plan Update

Public involvement is a vital component of the transportation planning process. Providing full disclosure of plans and programs not only during the development phase but also after the adoption of these plans and programs allows the general public the opportunity to be involved, comment on, and influence the development process. Every person, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, disability, or socio-economic status should have the opportunity to take part in and influence the transportation planning process. This Public Participation Plan provides for and documents the methods utilized by the LVTS to achieve this outcome.
