The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), as part of its ongoing efforts to engage citizens in Greater Philadelphia, has opened a selection round to solicit new members for its Public Participation Task Force (PPTF).
The PPTF is comprised of Board-appointed members and citizens at-large selected through an application process open to all residents of the nine-county DVRPC region. The task force provides ongoing access to the regional planning and decision-making process, reviews timely issues, serves as a conduit for DVRPC information to organizations and communities across the region, and assists the Commission in implementing public outreach strategies. For more details about the PPTF, visit www.dvrpc.org/getinvolved.
DVRPC is seeking applicants with an interest in planning, knowledge of regional issues, a history of civic engagement, and effective communications skills. Task force membership will also strive to reflect the region’s geographic, ethnic, cultural, and economic diversity. Individuals interested in serving as members on the task force must submit an application by December 31, 2015. Applications are available to the public at libraries throughout the region, online at www.dvrpc.org, and by contacting Shoshana Akins, Public Participation Planner, at 215-238-2817 or email@example.com.
