Based on public opinion surveys, workshops and information provided to the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission at numerous meetings the major planning issues in the Lehigh Valley are as follows:

  • redevelopment of old industrial sites including brownfields
  • renewal and revitalization of the cities
  • development of more parks and recreational facilities
