1LV assembles ten distinct reports covering a variety of topics across four themes: economy, environment, transportation and livable communities. Long-term public engagement reached over 12,000 residents of the Lehigh Valley and identified community priorities. The final publication uses charts, maps, photos and infographics that make the research findings accessible.
The key findings from this regional alliance will help guide future planning and policy decision-making across all cities, boroughs and townships within Lehigh and Northampton counties. LVPC will incorporate 31 goals, translated from the Consortium Partners’ work, into the update of the existing Comprehensive Plan The Lehigh Valley…2030.
Thirty years of population growth in the Lehigh Valley have resulted in extensive development and investment in existing communities and infrastructure. This Consortium has developed a philosophy to protect the Lehigh Valley’s assets for future generations.
These reports were made possible by a $3.4 million grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) made this report possible.
