Public Meeting: DVRPC Federal Certification Review Online and In-Person Wednesday, October 12th at 5:30 pm

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) invites you to attend the Federal Certification Review public meeting. This meeting welcomes members of the public, partner agencies, and other stakeholders to provide comments to the FTA/FHWA certification review panel regarding DVRPC and its role as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Greater Philadelphia region. The metropolitan area includes the counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, and the counties of Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Mercer in New Jersey.

The MPO is responsible for establishing priorities to meet short-term (next four years) and long-term (20+ years) multimodal transportation needs. The public meeting is an important part of the federal review process that is required every four years.
