Planning Advisory Committee

The Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) promotes regional planning and communication among the six counties of the Southern Alleghenies Region. The PAC meets on a quarterly basis to coordinate the planning strategies and interests of those counties. The PAC also serves as a steering committee for regional projects, including the Southern Alleghenies Greenways and Open Space Network Plan and the Southern Alleghenies Land Use, Transportation, and Economic Development (LUTED) Action Plan. SAP&DC Planning and Community Development Division provides staff support to the PAC.
