Deliberate Input Needed by DVRPC

The region needs deliberate input by caring residents through the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC).   Please note their flyer, below, and consider applying.


Public Participation Task Force
DVRPC The Task Force will give you the chance to:

  • inform DVRPC’s Board and staff of local issues and challenges;
  • participate in public service in a meaningful way;
  • address specific policy issues of concern to DVRPC;
  • recommend potential projects to the Commission;
  • offer recommendations regarding public engagement;
  • share DVRPC information with your community and county; and
  • network with a dynamic group of regional leaders and citizens.

The Task Force is a group comprised of representatives selected from the general public, community and civic organizations, advocacy groups, professional associations, and the private sector. We are opening a new selection round in order to add up to eight new members to the Task Force. Members will be chosen through an application process. Applicants must reside within DVRPC’s nine-county planning area. An interest in planning, as well as knowledge of regional issues, civic engagement, diversity of experience, and effective communication skills are also beneficial for membership.
