Lehigh Valley Planning Commission


Comprehensive Plan the Lehigh Valley ... 2030

Lehigh and Northampton Counties, Pennsylvania



Based on public opinion surveys, workshops and information provided to the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission at numerous meetings the major planning issues in the Lehigh Valley are as follows:


• preservation of farmland

• preservation and protection of natural features

• redevelopment of old industrial sites including brownfields

• renewal and revitalization of the cities

• development of more parks and recreational facilities

• upgrade roads and intersections


This comprehensive plan advocates measures to achieve these and other goals relevant to conservation, development and redevelopment in the Lehigh Valley in the next 25 years.
