Public Participation Task Force Application

The purpose of this application is to help DVRPC create a diverse, engaged body to address regional planning and public participation issues in the nine-county DVRPC region.

Elected officials are not eligible to serve as at-large members of the Task Force because we are striving to engage citizens who do not always play a role in the planning process. As an elected official, you may actively participate in other DVRPC plans and programs, and we constantly endeavor to engage the region's municipal and county governments through a variety of specific programs.

How long have you lived in the nine-county region served by DVRPC (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia in Pennsylvania; and Camden, Burlington, Gloucester, and Mercer in New Jersey)?

Please list any community organizations, boards, or other agencies in which you actively participate or have participated in the last five years, as well as any other work experience pertinent to this position.
