The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) adopted Connections – The Regional Plan for a Sustainable Future, in July 2009. Connections is a comprehensive blueprint that identifies important regional policies and planning objectives to maintain the region’s infrastructure and promote a sustainable future.

As part of the long-range planning effort, DVRPC utilizes meaningful, reliable, and easy-to-replicate data to track the region’s progress towards the goals of the long-range plan, and compiles the data in a Tracking Progress report. Regional indicator data are used to highlight successful programs and to identify which programs should be reviewed for effectiveness. Ultimately, Tracking Progress is meant to be used as a tool to align DVRPC’s planning and implementation activities and to serve as a guide for the region’s investment strategies.
