SOUTH JERSEY — The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is looking for area residents’ input as they update Connections 2050, the long-range plan for the Greater Philadelphia region that sets “the vision and goals for the region, strategies to achieve them, and allocates $67 billion in state and federal transportation funds through the year 2050,” according to the DVRPC.

The DVRPC says that the current plan “preserves and restores the natural environment, develops inclusive, healthy, and walkable communities, grows an innovative and connected economy with broadly shared prosperity, and maintains a safe, multimodal transportation network that serves everyone.”

Those who live, work, or visit the Greater Philadelphia region are eligible to complete the survey.

“This is a chance to make your voice heard regarding where you want to see investment here in Camden County and the region,” Commissioner Jon Young, a DVRPC board member, said in a press release from Camden County. “We encourage all of our residents to take the survey, as it will help the DVRPC continue to make progress.”

There are two survey options, a five-minute version and a ten-minute version, each have a Spanish and Chinese language option.

The DVRPC will enter qualified participants who successfully complete the survey into a raffle for one of 20 gift cards, valued at $50 each.

DVRPC must update the long-range plan every four years in order to keep the region eligible for almost $2 billion a year in state and federal transportation funds.
