Lehigh Valley Planning Commission

Host Sally Handlon welcomes guest Becky Bradley, Executive Director of the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission, for a discussion on the Lehigh Valley: Live, Work and Play: Part 2 -- An update of the regional planning efforts that have occurred in 2014.

(Original air-date 11/20/2014)

Becky Bradley is the new executive director of the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission, replacing Mike Kaiser, who retired this summer after more than 40 years as its executive director.  As a woman, as a newcomer, as a former city planner, as a young professional, she is breaking the mold.  In a region that is growing, sprawling, segregated by class and race, with a market that is usually growing so fast it is hard to plan ahead, Becky will be facing plenty of challenges.
