A Force of Change Scenario Report for each category has been developed by SPC. The reports will be used, along with input from the public, to establish a range of potential strategies related to each Force of Change. These strategies were reviewed and discussed at a Regional Plan Workshop held in September 2018. The resulting list of strategies will be used to gather further public input and ultimately to update the long range plan for the Southwestern Pennsylvania region. SPC has identified forces that have effects on transportation and development in five broad categories:

This process has identified three emerging themes among the strategies: Connected Mobility, Globally Competitive Economy, Resilient Communities.

These themes have been developed through the long range plan process and each have strategies associated with them. These strategies will help address the needs of our changing region. You can find more information regarding the themes and strategies here.

The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission (SPC) is updating its regional long range transportation and development plan. SPC is the regional planning agency serving the 10-county Southwestern Pennsylvania region. The long range transportation and development plan connects the Regional Vision to the region’s official program of projects, programs and actions.
