PC assisted the Southern Alleghenies Planning & Development Commission with a master plan and economic development services for a six-county region in southwestern Pennsylvania. With this plan, PC focused on remote worker attraction and reducing housing blight. PC assessed the region’s ability and opportunity for communities to retain long-term remote workers from nearby metro areas (e.g.: Philadelphia, Washington DC, etc.) These strategies will directly interface with a strategic plan for reducing urban blight, improving quality of place, and reinvigorating historic downtown cores. PC’s work resulted in a regional plan presented in February 2022. Read the report here.
