Lehigh Valley Planning Commission
Pipeline Resource Center
The Lehigh Valley Planning Commission, Berks County Planning Commission, and Bucks County Planning Commission and Albright College’s Center for Excellence in Local Government worked with the League of Women Voters to provide pipeline planning information to our communities.
This LVPC Pipeline resource center provides accurate, objective information and support to the region’s municipalities as pipelines become a regular part of our lexicon.
Pipeline and Informed Planning Alliance (PIPA) has created a summary report for elected and appointed county officials along with a checklist for land use and development near a transmission pipeline that will assist with planning, design, communication, permit and site plan review.
