The ULI Philadelphia Lehigh Valley Regional Satellite Council recently had the pleasure of hearing from guest speaker Rachel Bradshaw, Director, Renew Lehigh Valley at their most recent committee meeting. Rachel shared the work that is being done by Renew Lehigh Valley and in particular, Envision Lehigh Valley. Envision Lehigh Valley is a public outreach effort designed to engage those who live, work or do business in Lehigh and Northampton Counties to create a truly sustainable Lehigh Valley. This three-year visioning project is funded through a Sustainable Communities grant through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Over the course of the next three years, Envision Lehigh Valley will be gathering input in order to create a vision for the future of the region and to update the region’s current Comprehensive Plan. This project will focus on the main areas of: economic development, fresh food access, transportation choices, housing choices, job/housing balance and climate/energy. All the input from social media, public meetings, surveys and individual conversations will be used in the “Comprehensive Plan The Lehigh Valley….2030.”
