Opportunity to Provide Input!
The State Transportation Commission (STC) and PennDOT have announced the public comment period for the 2023 12-Year Program Update is now open through April 14, 2021! An Online Public Forum will be held on March 23, 2021 at 6:30 PM. Completion of the survey is important in that the results are shared with your local planning agencies (in Berks County this is the Reading Area Transportation Study) for incorporation into local plans!
Taking the survey is important in that:
- Travel habits throughout the Commonwealth can be quantified.
- Users are asked to share their transportation priorities and prioritize how they would distribute limited funds.
- Users are provided the opportunity to suggest alternative funding sources.
- Users have the opportunity to share a particular project or problem area that is important to them. If a project already exists in that area, the survey will inform the user about that project.
You can access the survey, view the 2021 Transportation Performance Report, and learn more about the Online Public Forum by visiting https://talkpatransportation.com/

The Berks County Planning Commission serves as the area-wide planning organization for Berks County. The Commission provides a regional blueprint for land use, transportation and community facilities. It assists local units of government with development and preservation activities and provides guidance to the Berks County Board of Commissioners and other departments of county government. The Commission and its professional staff also serve as community advisors for modern planning practices and advocates for sound regional growth management. Finally, since the Commission is involved with a range of activities with a number of partners, it plays a very important coordinating role in community development issues and projects.
