The County’s partnership with the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is integral to the identification of regional priorities. The Department coordinates with DVRPC on numerous efforts, including the establishment of the regional Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which lists and schedules all projects that intend to use federal funds. Other efforts include specialized studies and regional task forces, such as the Regional Technical Committee and the Regional Community Economic Development Forum.
The Planning Department regularly supports the Delaware County Transportation Management Association (DCTMA) in its programs throughout the year. DCTMA initiatives include innovative traffic demand management efforts, such as Bike to Work Day in May each year, and Community Traffic Safety Program (CTSP).
The Delaware County Heritage Commission works jointly with the Planning Department to coordinate and promote the cultural heritage of the County. Efforts include educational workshops and the Annual Historic Preservation Awards, given to those who have contributed to retaining and maintaining the County’s Heritage.
The Coastal Zone Task Force creates an opportunity for multi-jurisdictional collaboration to address opportunities along the Delaware Riverfront. This task force plays an important role in coordination of various community projects, from the reuse and redevelopment of industrial complexes along the riverfront to implementation of the East Coast Greenway.
