Lehigh Valley Planning Commission
The LVPC has a long history of planning for and promoting the protection of the natural environment. Since its establishment in 1961, the LVPC has been involved in a variety of environmental planning activities including stormwater management planning, sewer and water planning, open space planning and hazard mitigation planning. As the region continues to grow, striking a balance between development and the protection of the environment becomes increasingly critical to maintaining a high quality of life in the valley. Environmental planning is key to achieving this balance. The LVPC has prepared numerous studies, plans and model regulations related to these activities.
