“From Lynn to Williams, LVEDC dedicates time to meet with our public sector partners to understand what their goals, opportunities, and priorities are,” said Andrew Kleiner, LVEDC Director of Regional Partnerships.

As part of this ongoing outreach, LVEDC is asking our partners at Lehigh Valley municipalities to help us more deeply understand regional economic trends and priorities from the municipal perspective by completing the 2022 Lehigh Valley Municipal Survey.

We invite municipal employees and elected officials across all 62 Lehigh Valley municipalities to complete this 5-minute survey. The results will only be shared in aggregate and your individual information will not be shared.

“We vow to continue to engage county and municipal leaders on local development priorities, regional marketing, and information-sharing” Kleiner said. “This survey will help us accomplish this and provide a window into regional economic trends.”
