March 14 Public Meeting re: Fern Rock Transportation Center in North Philadelphia

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission is hosting a special public meeting on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 6 PM at the African American United Fund Conference Center, 2231 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia. Please join us for dinner, networking, and discussion! This meeting is an opportunity to meet with DVRPC staff, learn about a topic in the regional planning process, and meet with other interested community members.

Gregory Krykewycz, PP, AICP, DVRPC Senior Transportation Planner, will highlight the Commission’s regional transit planning initiatives, including a recently completed plan for the Fern Rock Transportation Center. DVRPC’s Office of Transit, Pedestrian, and Bicycle Planning is engaged in a variety of transit planning work on an ongoing basis, typically pertaining to SEPTA, New Jersey Transit, and/or PATCO service.

The types of work we perform include:
Planning and research studies in support of "best practices" to improve the efficiency of our regional transit network, as well as coordination between states, counties, and transit agencies.

Survey and data support for regional transit carriers to facilitate operational, service, capital, and long-range planning.

Public outreach and engagement activities to support and articulate a long-range vision for our regional transit network.

Feel free to pass this information along to colleagues, constituents, etc. This meeting is open to the public, but RSVP is preferred.
