The following are Official Committees of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission. Here you will find agendas, meeting highlights and presentations (when available) under each Committee page. Note: All DVRPC meetings are open to the general public. However, due to limited space in the conference rooms and extensive committee memberships, it is requested that individuals inform DVRPC of their intent to attend a meeting one week in advance.
DVRPC does not permit external videotaping, audiotaping, or recording at its committee meetings. External taping is permitted at DVRPC's Board meeting when it is held in person; please inform staff of your intention to do so. Please note, since DVRPC is holding its committee meetings, including Board meetings, remotely via Zoom, staff may record the meeting to take meeting minutes, to share meeting content with committee members or members of the public, for educational purposes, or for other reasons not listed here. Attendees are notified multiple ways that the meeting is recorded, both before and during the meeting. By continuing to stay on the remote meeting or entering a meeting already in progress, the attendee consents to be recorded. The above also applies to meetings held in a webinar setting via Zoom.
