Thank you for sharing your vision for 2050!

In June and July 2020, Greater Philadelphians from all over the region shared their values, concerns and goals for the future.

  • Over 150 people attended an online visioning workshop. These 60-minute workshops provided an in-depth explanation of the Long-Range plan and offered thought-provoking exercises.
  • 12 organizations hosted a virtual Community Conversation.
  • More than 600 people completed an online survey.

We heard from over 1,000 unique voices during this visioning process!
DVRPC is analyzing all the comments received and will use them to develop a broadly shared vision for Greater Philadelphia.

By attending a workshop or taking the survey, individuals were entered into a giveaway to win a $50 gift card to support a local restaurant of their choice. We gave away 20 in June and July 2020.
