Environmental Planning


The LVPC has a long history of planning for and promoting the protection of the natural environment. Since its establishment in 1961, the LVPC has been involved in a variety of environmental planning activities including stormwater management planning, sewer and water planning, open space planning and hazard mitigation planning. As the region continues to grow, striking a balance between development and the protection of the environment becomes increasingly critical to maintaining a high quality of life in the valley. Environmental planning is key to achieving this balance. The LVPC has prepared numerous studies, plans and model regulations related to these activities.


Below are some of our key plans addressing water, climate, sustainability and environmental returns.
