LVEDC’s vision for the Lehigh Valley is a region with a diverse economic base that enable businesses to come here, start here, and grow here in order to create jobs and opportunities for all our residents. Planning is the process that brings that vision to fruition for places and communities as small as a single intersection and as large as an entire city.

These maps below, created and provided by the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission, provide such information as zoning, land use, municipalities, traffic, sewer, and water supply.
