LVPC MEETING SCHEDULE AMID COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH PANDEMIC

As the Covid-19 public health pandemic evolves, the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission is evolving its business operations to accommodate important public input, while following all of the guidelines set by Gov. Tom Wolf and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

 

The LVPC is moving all essential public meetings through the end of April to a virtual platform that will allow the public to participate online and by phone. A series of non-essential meetings have been canceled or postponed.

 

The first virtual meeting will be at 7 pm, March 26, for the monthly Full Commission meeting. Details on agenda and information about how to participate is available at https://lvpc.org/meetings.html

 

“The public plays an important role in everything we do and we never want that to change,” said LVPC Executive Director Becky Bradley. “We may not be able to all be in the same room, but we can still come together. Together is how we will get through this difficult time.”
